At Highbury, we cater for more than 550 boys in a vibrant and stimulating environment. Our staff make use of a ‘personal best’ approach towards education, taking the time to understand the needs, interests, strengths and weaknesses unique to each boy. We strive to give each boy a well-rounded education with every opportunity to reach his personal best while at school, to ensure that each boy is well-prepared for the demands of adulthood in the 21st century.

At Highbury, we have a co-education pre-primary unit, the Weavers’ Nest, which caters for Grade 0000 to Grade 00, with six fully qualified pre-primary staff, four teacher assistants and five interns.
