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



"Children and pupils at Highbury are animated, inquisitive, kind and very well behaved. They develop these characteristics because teaching is interesting and adults themselves model fairness, kindness and good manners".                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       OFSTED
