Dear Staff, Students and Friends of Highfields,

We are pleased to announce that Highfields was visited in January of this year – and we have been judged to be a Grade 2 ‘Good Provider’. This is just the 2nd time in the history of Highfields that we have reached this grade, and is an improvement on our 2017 Ofsted Inspection where the school was judged Grade 3 ‘Requires Improvement’.

Everyone involved in Highfields this past 18 months – staff, students, parents & carers, governors, partner schools and agencies – should take a measure of pride in helping the school reach this milestone. The inspectors spoke particularly highly of the young people they met during their two days with us.

Full details of the visit and findings can be read here:

We now look forward to building an even brighter future for this wonderful school community.

Mr Grant, Headteacher
