Together we grow

What we’re up to

Congratulations to all of the children in Ash house, who took the honours in today’s pre-prep singing competition, impressing head judge Mr Mühlemann with their excellent rendition of George Ezra hit Shotgun. Enjoy! #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex

Our prep-prep children have had the most amazing week of swim galas, watched and cheered on by proud parents. The galas are a great way for parents to see just how much progress their children have made during the school year under the expert eye of Mrs Simpson, our brilliant Head of Swimming, and her skilled swim coaches. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex #Swimming

We love it when parents and grandparents pop into school, and today it was the turn of our marvellous mums to join the Reception children in the woods for some crafts using nature’s bounty and a lovely picnic around the campfire. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex

When child-initiated learning at pre-prep turns into an impromptu band rehearsal in front of the judges… #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex

We’re really proud of our thriving art department, led by the excellent Mrs Houghton, and the imagination, creativity and dedication of our pupils, whose craft is recognised each month as part of a celebration assembly. This month, Adelina’s seeds of hope-themed clay sculpture, Ian’s Modigliani-style drawing in chalk and Clemmie’s self-portrait in acrylic paints took top billing. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex

Our intrepid Year 8 children are having a superb time in Wales courtesy of the excellent team at TYF Adventure. Firepits, teamwork challenges, rock climbing and surfboarding have been just some of the highlights so far as the children have faced their fears and thrown themselves whole-heartedly into a wealth of amazing activities. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex

Congratulations to all of our boys and girls who competed so brilliantly at the @iapsuksport national swimming championships at @londonaquaticscentre on Saturday.

When it comes to problem solving and working things out, we definitely think three heads are better than one! #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex

We’ve had the most scintillating afternoon of cricket as our 1st XI boys reached finals day in York on 17th June in the IAPS U13 cricket cup with a thrilling 49-run win over valiant visitors Bede’s Prep in the quarter-finals. Having been bowled out for 94, the boys gave little away in the field; the bowlers hitting a metronomic line and length to frustrate the visitors while the fielders were outstanding with direct hits on the stumps and nerveless catching seeing off Bede’s for 45. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex

Managing our estate is a big undertaking all year round, not least at this time of the year when Mother Nature has something of a growth spurt. This week, the lovely Katrina has been busy trimming and tidying the box hedges, ensuring they remain in tip-top shape, while head groundsman Jasper has been erecting a windbreak to protect the beautiful ornamental acer tree which was planted last summer in memory of Nilesh Patel, our much-loved head of IT. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex

On the 80th anniversary of D-Day, we fondly remember the Old Highfieldians who fell in the service of their country during the Second World War. We will never forget them. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex #DDay #LestWeForget

History has been brought to life for our Year 6 adventurers, who have spent the past few days in Ironbridge, a fascinating village on the banks of the River Severn which is widely believed to be the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. Not only did their time in Shropshire give the children the chance to dig deeper into their course work focusing on the UN sustainable development goal of affordable and clean energy, it also gave them the chance to call in at Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, on the way home to bring their English studies to life. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex

With little more than two weeks to go until Sports Day, our Reception children have been learning a valuable lesson in teamwork while practising their baton handovers ahead of the relay races. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex

Our children get such an amazing amount out of school trips. As well as building their confidence and gaining real-life experience of topics that they learn in the classroom, the children get a wonderful opportunity to put new-found skills such as leadership, problem solving, teamwork and creativity into practice; skills that will serve them well throughout their educational journey and beyond. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex

Focus and concentration were the order of the day as our Lower Prep children took aim at extra-curricular archery today. The children were taught how to create a solid anchor point with their stance, place the arrow in the bow, grip the string, draw the bow, take aim and release the arrow. Despite a few stray arrows early on, the children’s patience was rewarded as they found themselves hitting the target time and again. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex

Our young artists are using British painter and sculptor Maggi Hambling as inspiration in their latest extra-curricular project; researching her work before producing their own pieces based on Maggi’s amazing creations. #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex

A memorable day at Highfield and Brookham. Today we installed this stunning abstract seed sculpture, lovingly carved by current parent and Old Highfieldian @matthewkendallsculpture. It serves as a visual reminder of the life-changing Highfield School Centenary Bursaries Fund. The sculpture, carved from a fallen 300-year-old oak tree, took more than a year to complete and is 3.6m in circumference. “I have sought to incorporate the school’s motto of growing together into the piece. There is an obvious link with the use of a tree. Beyond this I chose a spherical form to represent the ongoing nature of growing and learning. The grain alludes to the shared pursuit of growth, the cracks to the inevitable mistakes involved in the learning process, the twisting and cracking that will take place as the wood dries to the ever-evolving nature of a learning community, and the fluted grooves to the impact each person has on the school and the school on them in turn.” Thank you, Matthew, for this beautiful gift! #TogetherWeGrow #IndependentSchool #PrivateSchool #BoardingSchool #PrepSchool #PrePrepSchool #Nursery #Liphook #Hampshire #Surrey #WestSussex #ChangingLives #TransformationalBursaries

We’ve had a fabulous week of holiday clubs with children eagerly engaging in a variety of activities. From mastering new recipes in cookery, honing survival skills in bushcraft, to improving their swings in golf and tennis, the enthusiasm and joy have been truly inspiring. As we look ahead, the summer holidays are fast approaching, and we are excited to offer even more incredible opportunities for your children to learn, play and grow. Don’t miss out on the chance to give your children an unforgettable summer experience. Check out all the wonderful clubs we have planned here➡️bit.ly/3VnNNs1

A truly heart-warming day as we installed the beautiful abstract seed sculpture, painstakingly carved by current parent and Old Highfieldian Matthew Kendall. It serves as a visual reminder of the life-changing Highfield School Centenary Bursaries Fund. The sculpture, carved from a fallen 300-year-old oak tree, took more than a year to complete and weighs approximately one tonne. “I have sought to incorporate the school’s motto of growing together into the piece. There is an obvious link with the use of a tree. Beyond this I chose a spherical form to represent the ongoing nature of growing and learning. The grain alludes to the shared pursuit of growth, the cracks to the inevitable mistakes involved in the learning process, the twisting and cracking that will take place as the wood dries to the ever-evolving nature of a learning community, and the fluted grooves to the impact each person has on the school and the school on them in turn.” Thank you, Matthew, for this incredible gift!
