WHO WE ARE
Highgate Junior School aims to ensure that every child from Year 3 to Year 6 is excited about learning. We want our children to grow in confidence, enthusiasm and independence. With our spacious grounds and facilities, allied to the most forward thinking teaching methods, we offer a creative, stimulating environment for children and aim to nurture a lifelong love of learning. Situated within walking distance of Kenwood House and Hampstead Heath, our intake reflects the diversity of modern London, as we seek to expose our children to the very best that London has culturally to offer.
The Junior School has very close links with the Senior School, to which girls and boys transfer at eleven, thus providing a secure continuity of education. The Junior School does not prepare pupils for other senior independent schools. The Principal, is a member of the Independent Association of Preparatory Schools (IAPS).
STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
We are about to embark upon a complete rebuild of the Junior School over the next 2 years. In December 2013 we will move to temporary accommodation at the other end of our current site and will return to a newly built Junior School in January 2016.
Further information is available here.
We have 340 children in 4 classes across 4 year groups. The year groups are physically grouped together within the buildings.
The school is served by the Principal, a Deputy Principal, Director of Studies, 3 Assistant Principals and 20 other full- and part-time teaching staff. There are a number of support staff and classroom assistants as well as peripatetic music staff and learning support teachers.
The Junior School has its own Music Centre and Dance Studio. Art and Design Technology are currently taught in the Foundation’s excellent Art, Design and Technology Centre, The Mills Centre.
