Our Facilities

We are very proud of the facilities we have on offer at Highfield.  All the classrooms are spacious and well-designed to support the education of our girls.  The Nursery and Reception classes have free-flow outside learning areas so the girls can learn in all weathers.

At Highfield the girls have access to a dedicated ICT suite and a newly refurbished Discovery Room – a specialist classroom for food technology and science lessons.  In addition we have a specialist music room also, where the girls can be creative and learn a new instrument.

There is plenty of outside space for the girls to run around in during break times, with two separate playgrounds for the different year groups.
