Mr beerHighworth Grammar School combines a tradition of academic excellence with extensive pastoral support. The school has been educating students from the Ashford community for over a century and we are now a thriving school with over 1500 students and 140 staff.  Students at Highworth love learning and are highly motivated.  We care about our students and they care about each other which creates a happy and supportive learning environment.

We are also an innovative school and are constantly looking to find ways to improve what we do. It is important for us to deliver a broad academic curriculum to allow students to discover their interests and passions. We aim to develop students who are reflective and perceptive. We want them to become confident learners, able to think independently, yet willing to ask questions and find creative ways to overcome challenges.  All of these things make our students better prepared to become life-long learners and realise their goals as they reach for the stars.

Highworth’s strength is built upon our community and we are eager to work in partnership with you to provide a fulfilling and enjoyable educational experience. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Highworth.

Duncan Beer, Headteacher
