Highfields School is an above-average-size comprehensive that attracts pupils from a large number of primary schools. Sixth form provision is made in collaboration with three other schools. Nearly half the pupils are from White British backgrounds and about a third are of Indian Asian heritage. The rest are from a range of backgrounds. The proportion of pupils with English as an additional language is well above average but few are at the early stages of learning English. The proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals is just below average. Fewer pupils than average have learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The school became a specialist science school in 2003. The school had an acting headteacher last year but a new permanent headteacher was appointed from September 2007.
