Welcome to Highfield Humanities College

Headteacher’s Welcome

I am delighted to be writing to you as the new Headteacher of Highfield Humanities College and immensely proud to be given the opportunity to work with the families, staff and governors of this vibrant and thriving community. I have been impressed with the determination and resilience of both the staff and students that I have met so far and I am looking forward to working more closely with all Highfield families in a true partnership where everyone can thrive and enjoy the successes they deserve.

Highfield is a large, inclusive, hard-working secondary school with special designation as a Humanities College. We are housed in a fantastic, eye-catching, purpose built new building on extensive grounds situated on Highfield Road.

We honour traditional British Values of care, consideration, trust and respect whilst enjoying the benefits of state of the art technology, facilities and resources.

We pride ourselves in the personal touch and enjoy a long-standing reputation of being a school that goes the extra mile. We are regularly oversubscribed, as parents appreciate the warmth and care of our pastoral support whilst continually striving to cater for all abilities. We are truly inclusive and encourage all our students to aim high and are proud of our Oxbridge graduates as well as those who need special provision. Our teachers and associate staff are experienced, well qualified and professional and all genuinely have the welfare of our pupils as their priority.

We know that starting secondary education is a huge change for many families, which is why we place significant effort and attention on our summer programme and transition activities helping new students to extend their friendship group, get to know our staff and find their way around our impressive site.

I want to extend a very warm welcome to all newcomers to this website and to Highfield Humanities College itself, please get in touch if you can’t find what you are looking for or if you would like to visit the college itself.
