Bringing out the Best


from our Principal

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 Principal 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 at Highlees 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.

We will be delighted to welcome you to the School to share our vision and values, our culture and climate for learning and the aspirations we have for our community of learners.

Mrs Melissa Albert
