Whilst Highwood Primary School was first established in 1949, it has since been wholly rebuilt, moving from its original location on Bushey Mill Lane to Mead Way, Bushey. Highwood is a thriving, dynamic, forward thinking school for children aged three to eleven years of age. We admit sixty pupils per year group. Currently there are 433 pupils on roll.

At Highwood we actively seek to make a positive difference to every child’s learning journey. We know that teaching is our core purpose and we endeavour to ensure our provision is the very best possible. The talented teaching teams at Highwood are our biggest asset – they consist of teachers, teaching assistants, higher level teaching assistants, and SEND teaching assistants along with a myriad of support staff who work together to provide the guidance, encouragement and challenge every child needs to progress in their learning and fulfil their potential.

Our fabulous school building enables us to think, plan and work differently. Our revolutionary teaching spaces encourage us to be creative in our approaches to teaching. Outdoor classrooms have ample light and space and provide opportunities to enable learning to take place outdoors. Our courtyards and zoned curriculum spaces are at the heart of the school and are designed to enrich children’s learning through enabling first hand discovery and wide scope for play. Our schools grounds are landscaped and designed to stimulate children’s curiosity and their appreciation of the world around them – our pond, allotment and wild areas are all aimed at enriching a child’s spiritual, moral, cultural and social experiences.

Our school community is diverse and reflects the cosmopolitan nature of our local neighbourhood. Our children vary in their abilities and we aspire to instil a love of learning in each and every one of them.

Our Breakfast and Tea Time clubs are a great success and also a huge convenience to working families. We offer a good variety of lunch time and after school clubs, which are run by members of staff, or members of our community. We work with our extended school partners to provide support and guidance to families within our locality. We also regularly lead information sessions for parents who we value as equal partners in their child’s education.

Our governing body is committed and ambitious in its leadership of Highwood – governors offer good challenge and high levels of support to the senior leadership team. The ‘Friends’ of Highwood are proactive and generous in giving time to organise enjoyable events that raise additional and significant funds for our school.

We are proud of the professional learning community that is established at Highwood. It is one in which staff members support and nurture one another, continually striving to ensure the highest quality of educational provision.
