Highfield Junior and Infant School (as part of the Prince Albert Community Trust) remains unwavering in its commitment to providing opportunities for you to ask any questions you may have about our school and what we can offer your child.

Our virtual open event will be hosted by myself and will provide you with more information about our school, our EYFS offer, our ethos and our core values. The event will also be an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have.

Our event will take place on:

  • Monday 14th December at 11:00am (via Microsoft Teams)
