Highfield Leadership Academy

The school had a new building in 2001 which is used as the English, History and Art Department. In 2007 the school featured in the DCSF list of schools that had made the best sustained improvements in their GCSE results over the last four years.

We know how important it is that all our pupils get the best academic education, pastoral care and moral direction.

We all work together to achieve academic and personal excellence. “Working Together” is not just a motto it is seen in everything we do. We are an academic school where pupils enjoy their learning and aspire do their very best. We encourage pupils to be responsible for their own learning. We emphasise high moral values, social responsibility, tolerance, love, compassion and honesty. 

We aim to give every Highfield child the very best teaching and personal support that we can. Teaching and support staff work together with other schools and agencies to meet the needs of all our pupils. We provide pupil experiences that help develop their personal and academic skills. We prepare them well for the next stage of their education, training or employment. We continuously adapt and improve what we do. We want everyone to have excellent communication and numeracy skills, be good team workers, problem solvers and use new technologies effectively. These are skills needed to succeed in the 21st Century.
