Our boarding provision initially opened for children who were not able to attend the school, unless they were residential. This meant that our international, forces and ex-pat children returned to boarding first.
After allowing time for us all to get used to living and working with the new structures, we were delighted to welcome back our local boarders too at the end of September.
New boarders, regardless of when they start at Highfield, are given a friendly and thorough induction to the school and boarding school life. They receive the highest levels of pastoral support and guidance as well as the support and friendship of a peer mentor to help them through their first weeks and months at Highfield.
In order to mitigate the risk of infections we are regrettably not offering our Steps to Boarding programme until further notice.
