Welcome to the Highfields School website

Welcome to the Highfields School website.  We are a non-selective, co-educational, independent day school based in the historic market town of Newark, catering for girls and boys aged from 2 to 11.

At Highfields we are proud of the many things we do to help your child feel welcome, valued and encouraged as an individual. As Headmaster, I am confident that this website will give you a flavour of our thriving, vibrant, high achieving school.

Our NURSERY is open 51 weeks a year and offers a full day from 7.30am until 6.00pm accepting children from the age of 2.

Our MAIN SCHOOL starts at Reception for children turning 5 and ultimately goes on to prepare children for common entrance or 11+ entry to senior school at 11.  

At Highfields we believe in three simple principles:

Our aim is for every child to attain their best possible academic potential, which we achieve with small class sizes, specialist teaching and dedicated learning support.  I believe it is important to nurture the talent in every child and give them the best possible start to their education, treating each child as an individual.

Richard Thomson-BAIRD-0186-2We understand how children learn and have developed an enhanced curriculum that goes beyond the classroom and  is fun and exciting, inspiring not only a love for learning but building self-esteem and encouraging children to explore and enjoy new challenges.

Fundamental to all this is our firm belief in establishing strong foundations for your children’s future development.

I look forward to welcoming you and your family personally for a visit which will enable you to gain a full picture of the unique and caring environment that makes Highfields so special.

Mr Richard Thomson, BEd (Hons), NPQH, Headmaster
