Fees

One thing that is a constant is The Highfield Vision to be a “Beacon of Excellence in all-round education”, this being achieved through a partnership between the girls, the school and our parents.

We pride ourselves on offering excellence and a superb education at a competitive price, providing exceptionally good value to our families.  Education is always at the heart of the School and this drives our high standards and continuous improvements.

As a registered charity we reinvest back into Highfield, ensuring we offer the very best to our girls and families.

Registration

Girls may be registered for a place at any time. There is a £100 fee for this. In the term before your daughter is due to start we will ask for a £500 deposit which is refunded in the final term.

Fees

Inclusive of swimming tuition throughout the year, educational visitors, games transport, all text books, stationery, pupil’s personal accident insurance and achievement awards.  Residential trips, Educational Visits, Earlybirds and The Den will be charged separately.

Nursery Package

In this changing world we recognise that working parents need childcare that fits with their busy lives, but still provides the best possible start for their daughter, and that’s why we go that extra mile to support our Highfield Families.

For girls in the nursery we offer a free Breakfast club and free afterschool care in The Den for each full day they attend school. That means we can care for your daughter from 7.45am until 6pm.

Your daughter will receive a nutritional breakfast on arrival and a sandwich tea is served at 4.30pm as part of our afterschool club. This is in addition to the cooked lunch that she will receive when she attends a full day in Nursery.

Terms and conditions

– This package is only available to children in the nursery, it does not extend beyond this stage.
– This package is only available on the days where children attend a morning and an afternoon session combined.
