Highfield Receives IAPS Accreditation

We’re delighted to announce that Highfield Prep School has been accepted as members of IAPS (The Independent Association of Prep Schools), which represents over 650 outstanding prep schools throughout the United Kingdom and overseas.

This is a fantastic ‘kitemark’ as to be eligible for membership schools must reach a very high standard; delivering excellent standards of education and pastoral care to their pupils.

Head of Highfield, Mr James Savile said,

“This is a wonderful achievement for our school. Not only does this bring a lot of prestige, but it also enables us to explore new opportunities for staff development and the potential for sporting fixtures on a regional or national level – which is very exciting for everyone!” 


“Highfield Prep is an exceptional school and to be recognised at this level is testament to the hard work of all the teaching staff. Their dedication and commitment to the school and the children is outstanding.”

About The Independent Association of Prep Schools

IAPS believe that schools should be unfettered by government interference and with fewer financial and other resourcing constraints than state schools, to ensure that their educational provision is tailored to the needs of the individual children.

Although each of our schools is independent, and has its own ethos, they are all committed to delivering an excellent, well-rounded education to the pupils in their care.
