Autumn Festival goes with a bang

Our Autumn Festival went with a bang as crowds flocked to the school to take part in a host of fun activities, witness live dance and music performances and watch a spectacular fireworks display.

The Autumn Festival has become a popular annual fixture on the school calendar over the past four years and this year’s extravaganza was our biggest and brightest yet.

More than 200 students, parents, teachers and members of the local community came along to the event where they were entertained with a diverse mix of live performances, including dhol drummers, singers, a rock band, Asian musical group and dancers.

The event also included a cake sale, henna and face painting, crafts activities and a competition to guess the weight of a pumpkin to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Highfields’ Head of Performance Sharon Bishop, who organised the event, said: “The Autumn Festival is an incredibly popular event on our school calendar and this year was our best so far.

“There was something for everyone and every visitor had a great time. Our students were wonderful in their live performances and the fireworks display was a fantastic finale.”

Highfields has hosted an Autumn Festival since moving into its state-of-the-art building in 2012.
