We are prestigious English country day and boarding schools, founded in 1907. We welcome international children at any age, and they are able to board with us from 8 – 13 years. The School is set in 175 acres of beautiful Hampshire countryside, yet is less than an hour from London and Heathrow Airport. Highfield enjoys outstanding academic success and feeds the top Senior Schools in England; Eton, Winchester, Marlborough, Downe House to name but a few.
There are three options for international families; to join the main school during the academic year either long term or for a short stay, and/or to attend our Summer School.
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! Highfield has been preparing children for entry into the top Senior Schools in England for over 100 years and we are very proud of our 100% success rate for securing every child’s place at their first choice senior school. For more about Highfield School visit our Homepage, or Admissions Page.
If you 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. Just under 300 children attend Highfield, 130 of them are boarders, and only 35 are international students. For families wishing to send their children to England for the purpose of improving their English, Highfield is a perfect choice 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.
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.
