School Profile

Highgate School is an academically selective, co-educational day school for pupils aged 3-18

Highgate is three schools in one: the Pre-Preparatory School (ages 3-7) and the Junior School (ages 7-11), each with its own Principal, and the Senior School (ages 11-18). Girls and boys in roughly equal numbers are admitted at 3+, 7+, 11+, 13+ and 16+ from a diverse range of backgrounds and schools, both state and independent, throughout North London. We provide means-tested bursaries and scholarships (both academic and musical) at 11+, 13+ and 16+; scholarships are honorary.

We aim to be a place for learning and scholarship; a reflective community; an exemplar for the healthy life. In short, a school which values every stage of childhood while preparing pupils intellectually and emotionally for further study and employment.

Each school within the Foundation has its own character but a common purpose and identity. Whenever a pupil arrives, we hope that the key features of the Highgate experience remain the same for her or him: the sense of community, love of learning and independent growth which we believe characterise the Highgate way.
