Together we encourage
At Highfield and Brookham, the needs and development of our children are at the heart of everything we do. From the time our boarders wake up in the morning and our day pupils arrive, their care and well-being is of the utmost importance to our dedicated staff who are committed to making them feel safe and nurtured.
We know that children need to feel secure and happy in order to try their best, learn successfully and thrive. During their time with us, we are here to safeguard the children, to listen to them, to support them through the challenges of life, to cherish their individuality and educate others to do the same. From Nursery onward, children are taught a comprehensive Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) curriculum which allows them to develop their emotional literacy, social skills, resilience and independent thinking. Whether in the classroom, on the Astro pitch or in the Art room, our children are developing their ability to express themselves, work collaboratively, set goals and reflect upon their successes.
Our Form Tutors and Heads of Year are instrumental in helping pupils develop their sense of independence, resilience, self-awareness and self-esteem
We focus on helping our children build an awareness of the world beyond Highfield Prep School, on developing grit and resilience and, most importantly, a sense of self-awareness
