Every year we hold an overnight camping and music festival fondly know as Highfest.  For pictures of this year’s festivities and prevous years’, please see our FFH page as well as our News page.

Highfest 2018 last year was held on Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th June and it was our biggest and BEST party yet!  “Around the World” was the theme of last year’s open air overnight camping festival and we certainly made the most of it.  With hot air balloons, a live World Cup football tournament and brilliant live music there was something for everyone.  Thank you to our amazing FFH team for pulling off another spectacular event!

The FFH would like to say a big, big thank you to everyone who supported Highfest 2017.  It was a blast and yet again has provided us with some very special schoolday memories of Highfields.  Our very special thank go to:

  • Chef Ling and Jordan for going beyond the call of duty in providing us with simply the finest food you will ever find at any festival
  • Mr Saunders for his on-site support and expertise
  • Mr and Mrs Mason (our own Des and Angie) for running the bar
  • Mr Thomson for his invaluable and unflappable help
  • and to Mrs Abel without whom none of this would have been possible because she thought of it

We would also like to thank all the teachers who have kindly volunteered their time; the children for making our colourful bunting, all the parent volunteers who have helped us is setting up the event and for giving their time during it to ensure that every activity was supervised and – of course – to everyone who bought a ticket and came along to enjoy this unique experience at our amazing school.
