Open Morning - Saturday 24th April 2021

We know things have been a bit different this past year but now we are looking forward to brighter days ahead.  In anticipation of this, something very special is happening in Newark, Nottinghamshire.   At Highfields School, a co-educational independent preparatory school for children aged 2-11, we are opening our doors to give you the opportunity to see inside our wonderful school.  Come to our Open Morning on Saturday 24th April 2021 and see for yourself the magic that awaits.  

We want to share with you all the brilliant facilities and activities our pupils enjoy.  From weekly Forest Schools sessions to specialist teaching in music and sport, we offer much more than other schools with an extended curriculum delivered by exceptional teachers.

We are the only independent prep school in this area to be awarded EXCELLENT IN ALL AREAS at our most recent inspection (ISI, June 2019).  See the full report here.


As experts in education, we can offer your child a fulfilling and enriched experience in a caring and happy environment.  

Our school is set within several acres of stunning natural parkland, providing a calming and restorative space for your child to learn and grow. We take learning outside the classroom into our beautiful grounds to encourage children to try new experiences in an environment where they feel safe and confident.

At our Open Morning on Saturday 24th April you will be given a personal tour of our vibrant school, which starts with our stunning nursery for our youngest pupils aged from 2.  We will show you how we nurture your child, supporting them  as they move up to main school.  We have small class sizes and in years 1 to 6 (through Pre-Prep and Prep) our carefully planned curriculum expands and develops to meet the individual needs of each child.

Pupils at Highfields can access a wide range of activities including musical instrument tuition including singing, speech and drama sessions, and facilities including a dedicated sports hall and art studio, the latest learning materials and integrated technology throughout all classrooms.  Our spacious playing fields provide top quality sports pitches for rugby, football, hockey, cricket, athletics and cross country.  An enriched PE curriculum takes our pupils even further afield with sailing, golf, kayaking and archery all on offer.


We know that choosing a school for your child is an important decision.  At our Open Morning we can show you what we can offer your child and you can talk to us, face to face, about how we can help you make the most of your child’s education. 

At Highfields we believe every child can achieve their true potential and it is our aim to give them that opportunity.

Come to our Open Morning on Saturday 24th April from 10am-12noon and see the difference for yourself.
