Covid-19 Information

We are delighted that Highfield and Brookham Schools are fully open and enjoying greater freedom to operate more normally again, albeit with stringent hygiene and social distancing requirements in place.

Much has had to change, and we are very aware that things could change again. Your children’s safety, wellbeing and happiness remain our paramount concern and we will do everything to ensure that, no matter what the future holds. We will continue to keep a close eye on all developments and update you accordingly.

Safety Precautions 

We are proud to have committed to adhering to the Boarding Schools' Association's (BSA) COVID-Safe Charter. Established in May 2020, the Charter aims to ensure the safety of all pupils and staff as schools begin to re-open across the UK, following closures due to the Coronavirus pandemic. You may also be interested to read our Covid-19 Boarding Handbook to find out more about the precautions we are taking to protect against the spread of the virus.

Boarding Safely

Our boarding provision initially re-opened for our international, forces and ex-pat children and we are delighted to have all our local boarders back now as well. To find out how boarding is operating during the pandemic please visit the Re-opening Boarding page.
