“The organisers reported that they had received a record number of entries this year and the standard was the highest yet so to be shortlisted is an extraordinary achievement.
“Highfield is a wonderful school and to be recognised at this level is testament to the hard work and enthusiasm of our staff, our pupils and support of our parents.”
Speaking about the awards, Tes Editor Ann Mroz said: “Independent education in this country is truly world class.
“It’s one of our great success stories. And those shortlisted for the Tes Independent School Awards are the crème de la crème.”
