The Department for Education issued an Academy Order for Highfield Community Primary School

to convert to an academy with

Valley Road Community Primary School

as part of the Iris Learning Trust. 

Welcome to our website





We arrived safely at Derwent Hill and spent the afternoon getting to know the grounds, sorting out our kit and meeting our instructors - Sue and Zak. 
After a lovely roast beef dinner we headed out for our night walk. Even though it was raining that didn’t dampen our spirits. 
We are now fully rested after a good night sleep and looking forward to our mountain journeys today and hoping the rain stays away!
