Welcome to Highwood. We are a small friendly village school situated in the hamlet of Highwood just outside Chelmsford. At Highwood we provide an exciting, broad and engaging curriculum which encourages our children to become confident, resilient, life-long learners. We aim high wanting all our children to exceed expectations and attain the very best results they can, academically, creatively and personally.We are an inclusive school and offer a unique opportunity for children by teaching them in small classes with staff who know the children well. We work well with our local community and have the opportunity to use our extensive grounds and local forest to extend our curriculum. I am proud to be the Headteacher of Highwood with a history which dates as far back as 1850. I invite you to visit us to see how we work, please contact the school to arrange a visit. Helen Hutchings, Headteacher.
