After Highfield

One of the key benefits of Highfield is the supportive and collaborative process we offer parents to help identify the right Senior School for their child. We feed the top senior schools in the country and take great pride in our flawless record of securing every child’s place at their first choice Senior School.

We want our children to be as happy and fulfilled at Senior School as they have been at Highfield and the process of finding the right school is an exciting and collaborative venture between us, the parents and the child themselves.

This process can begin as early as Year 4, particularly if parents are looking to send their child to their Senior School at 11+. It involves detailed discussion between the Headmaster and the child's parents, recommendations of schools that appear to fit their broad objectives and then visits by parents to these schools, so that they too can get a feel for them. I always tell parents it is a little like house hunting; there are those houses we visit and rule out immediately, others that seem to ‘almost’ fit the bill and then those that we know almost instinctively and in our hearts are the right ones. Although the top Senior Schools are all doing broadly the same things extraordinarily well, offering outstanding facilities and opportunities and a mouth-watering range of extra-curricular activities, each is unique, with its own atmosphere, priorities and 'feel'. It is this ‘feel’ that so often informs the matter of choice.

Another key benefit is that Highfield allows parents to keep their options open. Whether you eventually choose day or boarding, co-educational or single sex, at 11+ or 13+, Highfield provides a wonderful and relevant experience for your child, ensuring they leave us as happy and well-rounded individuals, full of enthusiasm to tackle the next stage of their learning journeys.
