Highfield Preparatory School is now accepting both boys and girls for Reception to Year 2.
Highfield was a girls-only school from Reception upwards, with a co-ed nursery, until this academic year.
Now the school, based in West Road, has become co-ed from nursery until Year 2. The school will remain girls-only for Years 3-6.
The move to co-education is in response to the demands of parents who are increasingly seeking a family school that will serve both their sons and their daughters, particularly in the early years, the school says.
Joanna Leach, headteacher said, “This is a hugely exciting time for Highfield Preparatory School – a school that achieves extraordinary results thanks to its focus on teaching with pride, passion and positive expectations.”
There will be displays at Windsor Racecourse and Legoland, local fireworks in Burnham and Twyford and smaller displays at schools in the Royal Borough.
