Welcome to our Junior School

Highgate Junior School is for pupils aged 7-11. We have around 400 pupils, making up Years 3, 4, 5 and 6.

‘Our state-of-the-art building provides a nurturing and friendly environment that encourages both academic excellence and personal development. We want all pupils to believe that there are no glass ceilings to their learning and we aim that all strive to reach their full potential.’

Mark James, Principal

Our broad and creative curriculum is planned around specific learning objectives for every subject area, within each year group. We promote high levels of achievement and effort, ensuring our pupils acquire the academic skills needed. However, we push the boundaries beyond mere acquisition of knowledge: we want our pupils to develop the confidence to investigate and enquire, to solve problems, and to take responsibility for their learning. We aim to enrich the learning experience of our pupils, broadening their social horizons and cultural interests.
