Mrs Garner

Hello, I am Mrs Garner. I have been a part of the Highwood community for a number of years as a parent, HLTA and now a teacher. I have been a qualified teacher since 2004 and love the variety that comes with meeting and working with new children. Music has always been a real interest and passion of mine and I enjoy being able to incorporate singing into school life. Outside of school you’ll find me out walking in the fresh air and spending time with my family. The beach is my favourite place to be!


Ms Bolger

Hi. I'm Miss Bolger and I am really happy to have joined the Highwood community. I have 25 years of experience teaching across the KS1 and KS2. My aim is to create a warm, welcoming classroom environment, where every child feels included and a part of our team. 

My favourite subjects to teach are History because it is so interesting and fun and PE, as I am a strong believer in the importance of physical fitness for your own overall wellbeing.

Outside of school you can find me reading a book, or at the cinema. I enjoy playing sports, such as badminton, tennis and rounders. Most weekends you will find me at the swimming pool as I am a bit of a water baby!

Miss Hughes

Hello everybody! My name is Miss Hughes and I am very excited to be part of the Highwood team. I love allowing children to be creative and imaginative and incorporate this throughout the school day and I look forward to helping children develop their love of learning and exploring what the world has to offer. Outside of school, you will often find me painting or making amigurumi – anything crafty is fun to me.
