About Highfield Prep School, Harrogate

Highfield Prep School is a leading independent prep school for boys and girls aged 4-11 years in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. 

Highfield Prep School celebrates an important and wonderful stage in a child’s development.  From the very first day at school we aim to make this a happy, exciting and inspiring journey towards senior school. 

Children join Highfield Prep from across Harrogate and the surrounding area and are taught in small class sizes which enable us to focus on their individual development.  This approach helps our children to achieve their full potential both inside and outside of the classroom.  They have a strong sense of who they are and of the world around them.

By the time children leave us they’re fully equipped to tackle the next stage in their educational career and go on to achieve great things beyond our school.

What Makes Highfield Prep school Different?

Here’s what we believe makes Highfield Prep School such a special place:

  • Our passion for learning – Children at our school love to learn – it’s part of our culture; part of who we are.  We believe in learning through real life experiences and our curriculum is full of exciting opportunities that enable children to achieve their full potential.  As well as fantastic class teachers, children also benefit from specialist French, PE, Drama, Music and Swimming lessons every week from Reception.
  • Our extra-curricular programme – With almost 50 extra-curricular activities to choose from, children at Highfield Prep School have the opportunity to try new things; learn new skills and develop their individual talents – all within the school environment.
  • Our school community – Children at Highfield are happy, articulate and confident – in fact we think they’re pretty amazing!  We also have incredibly supportive parents; dedicated staff; and a strong sense of community – all of which are key to the success of our school.
  • Our facilities – As part of a wider family of independent schools, our children benefit from access to a wide range of teaching, sports, drama, music and arts facilities not normally available to younger children – all of which help us to enhance the school experience.
