Highgate School

Highgate is a co-educational day school for pupils aged 3-18.

Coronavirus Update

Highgate is one of the UK’s leading co-educational independent schools. Founded over 450 years ago, we provide means-tested bursaries and welcome pupils, aged 3 to 18, from a range of backgrounds across London.

Highgate offers high-calibre, academically-minded teaching with a focus on scholarship and independence for all, rather than on exam outcomes. Our varied co-curricular activities, and our wide-reaching programme of community service, help our pupils develop interests and hobbies, forge lasting friendships, belong to teams, ensembles and casts, and learn the value of community.

We believe in making the most of childhood and adolescence; we want our young people to leave us intellectually and emotionally prepared for higher study and for work, and for playing a transformative role in their communities. And we want them to make great friends, too.

—Adam Pettitt, Head
