Located on the northern edge of Hampstead Heath and at the heart of Highgate Village, Highgate enjoys a setting that harnesses both the energy and creativity of modern, urban life alongside the opportunity for healthy activity or quiet reflection in an oasis of green space.
We are a community school with a keen sense of our heritage and we play an active role in the life of the Village and the local boroughs. We draw a significant number of our pupils from the local area, as well as reaching out to pupils from further afield with the excellent public transport links on our doorstep.
We believe in creating a positive culture of community in which all staff and pupils seek out opportunities to build positive relations so that each individual feels encouraged and valued. Through our established Chrysalis partnership teaching programme and our sister school the London Academy of Excellence Tottenham, we have created valuable links with pupils and staff in other schools to the benefit of all. Our support of Great Lakes High School in Uganda and of charities closer to home, provides Highgate pupils with varied and unique opportunities to develop an understanding of their responsibility to the wider community but am copying in Louise who is refining the School Development Plan and may have some more up-to-date language in this area.
