Welcome to Highclare School

“We are a well-established independent, day school delivering an outstanding education in a caring and inclusive environment, for pupils aged two to 18 years.

We aim to nurture and inspire, igniting pupils’ interests throughout their entire school life, so they become well-rounded, confident, and enthusiastic young people, both now and in the future.

We have a unique offering here at Highclare, with three separate locations in Sutton Coldfield and Erdington, each suitably sized to maintain a family atmosphere. This allows staff to know their pupils thoroughly and successfully guide them through each stage of their school journey.

We believe in fulfilling potential in everyone. Not only do our excellent grades reflect the outstanding teaching delivered at Highclare, but we offer a rounded programme of activities as standard to bring out the talents of every child – from one-on-one music tuition to astronomy or ballet.

Underpinning all that we do is a nurturing and supportive pastoral commitment based on our unshakeable belief that a young person who is happy is much more likely to be an effective learner, and a contented and giving member of our school community – and our society.

This website provides good insight into life at Highclare School, and I invite you to take a look around to get a taste of what we have to offer, then come and see first-hand what makes our school so special – I would be delighted to meet you.”

Dr Richard Luker
