Together we grow

Highfield and Brookham is an independent Nursery, Pre-Prep and Prep School in Liphook for boys and girls aged 2-13, nestled on the leafy borders of Hampshire, West Sussex and Surrey.

We celebrate our genuine independence and prepare children for the leading boarding and top day schools. Not being answerable to a senior school or trust results in a strong sense of togetherness and a welcoming family feel. We work together with our children and their families to ensure the children receive the very best education possible.

Scholarship success

We have a flawless record of securing entrance to a child’s chosen senior school, whether at 11+ or 13+, and our scholarship success is further evidence of our outstanding academic ambition. Our children have been awarded an impressive 96 scholarships over the past six years alone to a diverse range of top senior schools, including Wellington College, Cranleigh School, Radley College, Marlborough College and Charterhouse, and include a huge variety of scholarships ranging from academic and art to sports and music.

Extensive grounds

Situated in 175 acres of glorious natural grounds in the South Downs National Park, on the borders of Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire, our beautiful estate provides not only a stunning backdrop for our Nursery, Pre-Prep and Prep, but importantly is a wonderful place for learning. We are committed to making the most of our amazing grounds, as well as protecting and enhancing them.

What we’re up to

Having been proudly named a finalist in prestigious national pastoral awards last year, we are hoping that our brilliant wellbeing hub – The Beehive – will help us go one better this time around. bit.ly/3UasjNs #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex #SummerTerm #Pastoral

Our green-fingered prep school children are beginning to see the fruit of their enrichment lesson labours. Their broad beans are coming along nicely, with potatoes, onions, asparagus and lavender not far behind. Once harvested, the vegetables will be used in school meals. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex #SummerTerm #VegetablePatch #Gardening

We pride ourselves on our strong pastoral provision and our children understand the importance of having good friends to lean on. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex #SummerTerm

To mark EarthDay.org, our pre-prep and prep school children have been considering the harm plastic pollution causes to nature and the impact fashion has on the environment. The children looked at the life cycle of plastic water bottles, including the raw materials used in the manufacturing process and how they are made, packaged and distributed, and what happens to them once they have been used. Our young eco warriors also dug deep to discover how many dyeing and finishing processes involved in producing the clothes we wear rely on toxic chemicals that not only harm workers but leach out into rivers and ground water systems; degrading the land, compromising drinking water and killing fish. The children were then tasked with designing T-shirts to raise awareness of the importance of being environmentally friendly. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex #SummerTerm

Our science labs are the perfect place for pupils to learn about scientific method and gain skills in critical thinking, deductive reasoning, problem-solving, and communication. And whether its physics, biology or chemistry, our dedicated science teachers are there to help, nurture and encourage every step of the way. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex #SummerTerm #Science #STEM

Tensions were running high today as a Year 6 classroom was hastily turned into a courtroom to determine who was responsible for the untimely deaths of tragic Shakespearian lovers Romeo and Juliet. Lawyers, suspects and the rapt gallery gave or heard evidence before the judges decided what, if any, justice needed to be meted out to the Montague and Capulet families. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex #SummerTerm #Shakespeare #RomeoAndJuliet

The scientists of tomorrow have been getting to grips with mechanics and circuits during their enrichment session today. The Year 7 children worked together in small groups to produce functional models and robots, learning more about each working element such as solar panels as they delved deeper into their science, technology, engineering and maths project. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex #SummerTerm #STEM #Science #Robotics

Did you know that as well as having the chance to play golf during weekly enrichment lessons and during after-school club sessions, our children also host competitive matches against visiting schools? #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex #SummerTerm #Golf

Our popular bushcraft course closed the door to the forest today, but not before a thorough tidy up to ensure they ‘left no trace.’ And of course, no bushcraft experience would ever be complete without some marshmallow toasting! The children have so enjoyed this course, making memories, learning skills and cherishing nature. We know they’ll be back for more next holiday. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex #HolidayActivityCourses #BushcraftAdventure #NatureExploration #LeaveNoTrace #BushcraftFun

Our busy schedule of holiday courses continues and today, amongst others, is our brilliant Musical Theatre workshop. This course, run by our very own Susannah Wilson, helps children develop their performance skills as they think about stage presence, voice and expression. As the children channelled their inner Matilda, we think it’s safe to say that talent is abound!

Archery and fencing were just two of the sports on offer in our multi sports holiday course run by the fantastic team at @jcsportsonline. The course offers a wonderful opportunity for children to try their hand at different sports, try something new and perfect existing skills and most importantly have a lot of fun! #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex #HolidayActivityCourses

Young gymnasts got a vaulting masterclass from top coach Denise Ogilvie today. The children learned to vault onto their knees, being mindful of their hand placement, before working on their dismounts, be it a star, tuck or straight jump. Gymnastics is just one of many brilliant Easter holiday activity courses we are running over the next 10 days.

Fingers crossed for plenty of sunshine between now and then! #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex #SummerTerm #NewCricketSeason

We’ve had a brilliant start to our packed Easter holiday activities programme, with creative crafting courtesy of the lovely ladies from Feltybeecrafts and an engineering masterclass in Tech Camp with the boffins from Next Thing Education Camps. Marbling and the art of needle felting were the order of the day for our young crafters while tomorrow’s engineers built battery-operated model robots, giving them a close look at exactly how mechanical systems work.
