SIR ROGER CHOLMELEY'S SCHOOL AT HIGHGATE
A registered charity, no. 312765
Highgate is a school with an ambitious vision and a compelling mission. Founded in 1565 by Sir Roger Cholmeley, we have occupied the same site for 450 years.
As a philanthropic school, Highgate can lead the way for the wider educational sector. With our nationally recognised educational partnerships, we can be a blueprint for change in state and private education. We can be a new kind of independent school.
Our ambitions for the future are rooted in a set of core beliefs and values, which underpin everything we do:
- We believe that a good education should be accessible to more than those who can afford it, so we raise funds so that bright children for whom Highgate is the right school can come here, regardless of their parents’ or carers’ ability to pay the school fees.
- We are convinced that our Chrysalis Partnership is an innovative educational model, enabling pupils in state schools across London to have access to our exceptional teaching and learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
- We want to develop and enhance the School’s buildings and facilities so that our environment is the best it can be for teaching and learning. The masterplan for our site is based on a sound curriculum rationale.
We are committed to raising funds for these three core areas, which correspond directly to our beliefs about the kind of school we want Highgate to be. We also welcome unrestricted gifts because they can be directed towards the area of greatest need.
Wherever your philanthropic interests lie, your support will go right to the heart of Highgate and make a tangible difference.
“If you ever think: ‘Why would Highgate do this?’ the response should always be: ‘Why wouldn’t we?’ Working in partnership with schools across our borough means we can attract the brightest and ablest teachers. We can give our pupils incredible experiences which prepare them for the future. We can transform our local community, create opportunities for children from all backgrounds, and be a springboard for mobility. So let’s roll up our sleeves and get on with it.” - Adam Pettitt, Head
