The Highfield School Centenary Bursaries Fund

"The Centenary Award gave my daughter the opportunity to be a child again. Highfield was quite literally life changing for her."


As part of our centenary celebrations in 2007, Highfield created an award scheme offering funded school places for children who would draw exceptional benefit from joining the School, perhaps as a result of less than optimal family or educational circumstances. Children offered Centenary Awards are funded jointly by the Bursaries Fund, and the School, which matches Awards made by the Fund.

Our Vision

Highfield has a long history of supporting such cases. The Centenary Bursaries Fund allows us to extend this and to broaden access to children who are not thriving in their current setting and for whom a private education would otherwise be impossible. By giving these children a great foundation as 8 to 13 year-olds, and by working closely with senior schools to secure the next stage of their education, we aim to give them the platform for educational success all the way through to University.

Changing Lives

The aim of the Centenary Awards is to make a real difference to a child’s life, not just academically, but also physically, emotionally and socially. The Bursaries are awarded to the children we believe will derive the most benefit from the Award, and where it will have the greatest impact in ensuring they reach their full potential.
