The children joined Highfield from across Harrogate and the surrounding area having attended a wide range of pre-school settings including Bankfield Pre-Prep, Highfield’s associated pre-school.

Head of Highfield Prep, Rachel Colbourn said;

“I’m delighted to welcome so many new children to our school community.  It’s the beginning of a new and exciting time for the children and we’re looking forward to helping them achieve their full potential both inside and outside of the classroom.   


“I’m absolutely confident that by the time they leave us they’ll be fully equipped to tackle the next stage in their educational career and will go on to achieve great things beyond our school.”
