Message from the Principal

Welcome to The Highcrest Academy.  I am confident when I say that everyone associated with The Highcrest Academy is proud of its achievements.  The students feel safe and secure in an atmosphere which promotes learning.  The Highcrest Academy is a well ordered and disciplined environment in which staff and students work effectively and happily towards a common goal.

The ethos of the school is such that the highest standards are set and adhered to at all times.  Highcrest is a school where students experience success, whether it is academic, social, in sports or in the arts.  The students are confident and are given the skills to enable them to set their own aims and to strive for these individual goals.  Indeed, this is at the heart of the philosophy of education at Highcrest, every child is treated as an individual with strengths and abilities to cherish and extend.

The education which Highcrest students receive means that, when they leave, they possess skills which equip them to continue to learn throughout their lives.  Students are offered a broad curriculum as well as the opportunity to take part in non-examination studies, community service and extra-curricular activities. Our philosophy is directed towards the development of mature, autonomous students, well able to direct and organise their own academic studies and social lives, enabling them to become valuable and confident members of society.
