The Catchment Area
The school is situated at the heart of Alsager and the catchment comprises of council and privately owned housing.
The current school opened in October 1988 and was extended in September 2012. The main building had significant building works undertaken during 2021-22 and this included the installation of a new fire alarm system as well as having a large part of the roof replaced. The school is on two sites and the Annexe building is situated opposite the main school. This building houses our Reception and year one class and also underwent a schedule of improvement during 2021-22. A privately owned nursery and pre-school share the Annexe site. Hoppers was opened in 2005 and as well as offering nursery provision also runs wrap around care in the form of a before and after school club. Alsager Highfields is fortunate to have extensive school grounds which include; a sports field, an astroturf pitch, an outdoor classroom, play areas, a pond and a woodland area.
The philosophy of the school is to ensure that all children are nurtured and encouraged to be the very best they can be. We strive for our pupils to leave our care as well-rounded individuals with a thirst for learning, who are fully equipped to start the next phase of their education. The school joined AMAT in September 2020 and has recently become part of the Cornovii Trust (September 2022), which consists of Alsager High School, Alsager Highfields, Audlem St James primary School, Brine Leas High school and Weston Primary School.
