It is helpful to apply before the end of Year 1. For further information on admissions please refer to the frequently asked questions.

Candidates sit tests at the school in English, Maths and Non-Verbal Reasoning. A significant proportion of candidates will be interviewed in groups. We also request a confidential report from your child’s current Head Teacher. In 2018 there will be places for approximately 70 boys and girls to join approximately 30 children from Highgate Pre-Preparatory School.

Parents who are considering Highgate for a 7+ place are invited to come on a tour of the Junior School. Tours are held throughout the year on a weekday morning during term time and last about an hour and a half. The visit consists of a talk by the Principal of the Junior School followed by a tour of the Bishopswood Road site, which includes the new Junior School, Mallinson Sports Centre and the Dining Hall, where you can ask questions over coffee. These tours are designed for parents only.

Please note that in the Autumn Term, tours are usually booked up quickly. For this reason, priority is given at this time of year to parents of children sitting tests for entry the following September.

Please book your place on a tour by ringing the Junior School Office on 020 8340 9193 or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Children whose parents have already submitted an application form will be invited with their families to our Open Morning on a Saturday in September. They will have the opportunity to meet current pupils, and teachers and to participate in a variety of activities.
