 Welcome to our school

Nurturing children to believe and achieve

At Highbury, we aim to provide a welcoming, nurturing and stimulating environment in which everyone feels secure and valued and develops to their full potential.

The total development and well-being of your child requires close co-operation between school and home. We place great importance on this partnership.

You are very welcome to make a visit when considering sending your child to our school.

We look forward to meeting you on many varied occasions and trust that should your child join us, they will spend a happy, productive and rewarding time at our school.

Mrs Helen Avey
