Welcome | Highfield Prep School, Hampshire

Welcome to Highfield Prep School, an independent day and boarding school, for boys and girls aged 8 - 13 years. We're found in 175 acres of stunning grounds in the South Downs National Park in Liphook, on the borders of Hampshire, West Sussex and Surrey. 

Phillip Evitt, Highfield Headmaster

It’s difficult to know where to start when describing Highfield. I could begin by telling you that we offer a simply outstanding prep school education. Or enthuse about our beautiful location in the heart of the South Downs National Park.  Or list our enviable facilities from Science labs, Music rooms, DT and Art Studio, natural playing fields and all-weather astro. Each and every attribute is vitally important, but I don’t believe it is what will ultimately be your deciding factor in choosing Highfield for your child. This will undoubtedly be a feeling, an instinct, you’ll simply know if the fit is right. 

Our promise to you is a simple one – we will deliver the best education possible. Our first-rate teachers will deliver a structured curriculum with progressive and dynamic content that will ignite a passion for learning in every child. Children at Highfield are full of life, full of enthusiasm for everything that goes on, and much does go on! Our curriculum is broad, offering an astonishing diversity of opportunity. Our teaching looks beyond the curriculum to skills learnt through sport, drama, music and art and our children learn skills that they will draw on as they progress on their journey through education and life.   

Our pupils’ wellbeing is at the core of all that we do. Children need to feel secure and settled in order to be able to learn successfully and thrive. Our teachers get to know each child as an individual, so their unique needs are truly recognised and understood. 

All this may sound too good to be true, but it is evident in our success. Highfield has an outstanding record of scholarships and in securing our pupils entry to their first-choice senior school. Children leave us as confident young people, well prepared and excited for their next steps at some of the top senior schools in the country.  

Of course, you can’t enjoy a real sense of Highfield's magic by visiting this website or reading our prospectus. The only way to discover if we are the right school for your family is to visit us and experience it for yourselves and I hope what you see here encourages you to do just that. I very much look forward to welcoming you to Highfield in the future.
