Based close to the centre of Peterborough, Highlees primary School has a long and strong history of serving the local community and of teaching generations of families. We are a two-form entry school with children from Reception through to Year 6 learning in an environment that engages, focuses and inspires them to do well.
I am exceptionally proud to be the Head of School here at Highlees Primary School. Our dedicated team of staff and the wider Trust, the Elliot Foundation, have one end goal; “Where children believe they can, because teachers know they can.” This reflects our conviction that raising expectations for all children and teachers is at the heart of a successful and inclusive society. Children are at the heart of everything we do and Highlees is at the heart of the community.
At Highlees, we aim to provide all pupils with a stimulating and inclusive educational environment in which everyone feels safe, respected and supported to grow and develop to their full potential and able to prepare for the next stage of their learning journey.
We are committed to raising attainment in English and Maths, improving outcomes for ALL pupils by providing them with a range of high quality learning experiences through an inspiring, broad and engaging curriculum. We want our children to love coming to school, be active learners who are curious, enjoy and achieve in all aspects of their learning.
We work hard to involve families in all aspects of life within the school and are proud of our community work. We recognise our cultural diversity that makes up our school community, seeing it as a strength, which we celebrate at every opportunity.
Our website has been designed to provide you with some useful information about our academy and as a vehicle to share with you what goes on atHighlees primary School. Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
I sincerely look forward to welcoming you and your child(ren) to the School.

A great evening was had by all at our Y6 sleepover. We all enjoyed little sleep, a game of rounders and football, hide and seek, disco and toasting marshmallows over a campfire. Well done to Year 6 - Class of 2022. @ElliotFndtn https://t.co/CN3xErvf8n
With the extreme weather next week, remember your child can wear their PE kit. Don't forget slip, slop, slap and bring your water bottle. https://t.co/0z4iM0GzXY
This is the reason we do what we do... a child from the year 6 sleepover has said 'it was the best night ever, do we really have to leave?' Our kids are exceptional , we are honoured to have been able to spend some of your journey of life with you.
