If you place children in English boarding schools – do take a look at Highfield!

Published Lynne on Friday, July 31, 2020

Highfield Boarding School

Founded in 1907, Highfield is a prestigious country Prep School that enjoys outstanding academic success and feeds the top Senior Schools in England; Eton, Winchester, Marlborough, Downe House to name but a few. If your families want to access the very best of UK education do get in touch; we have a 100% success rate for placing children at the first choice school and an excellent scholarship success rate.

The School is set in 175 acres of beautiful Hampshire countryside, yet is less than an hour from London and Heathrow Airport.

Our small and thriving boarding community of 130 boarders, only 35 of whom are internationals, offers a fantastic opportunity for full immersion in English language and culture. We welcome international children at any age, but they are able to board with us from 8 – 13 years.

Main School Admission

For parents interested in their children continuing on to a Senior School in the UK, Highfield offers the opportunity to gain important experience in a smaller 'family feel' environment that will help them settle easily and make the most out of their future Senior School. It’s much easier when you are one of the oldest children in the school, than one of the youngest! For more about Highfield School visit our Homepage or Admissions Page

If your clients are moving to the UK with children under 8 years old, our Pre-Prep Brookham offers a magical first experience of school in the UK.

Main School - Short Stay

As long as space is available, Highfield is happy to welcome children for short stays of one year or one term, during our academic school year. Highfield is a perfect choice for families wishing to send their children to England to rapidly improve their English, as our very low numbers of international pupils allow for a complete immersion in the English culture and language. For stays shorter than one term, we recommend our Summer School. For more about Highfield School visit our Homepage or Admissions Page.

Summer School

Highfield Summer School is owned and run by Highfield; ensuring the same level of quality and care that you would find during the main school term. Designed by us, the course offers international students aged 8 – 15 years, a three week, authentic, experience of life in our school; it’s a year at Highfield in miniature! The Summer School provides outstanding English language tuition, academic lessons, STEM, English school sports, activities & excursions. It's great for families just looking for a fun-filled way for their children to improve their English during the holidays, or to gain pre-boarding school experience if they have plans for English schooling in the future. For more information please visit our Summer School Homepage.
