Visit Highgate

See for yourself

Coronavirus Update

The next open events are:

Saturday 26 September & 3 October 2020
9am – 12.30pm

Our virtual Open Days allow you to discover what Highgate has to offer before making your application. If you are considering 7+ entry at Highgate, then our open day lets you view facilities, hear from our Principal, and talk to current staff and pupils. We encourage parents and children (in Years 1 and 2) to join us.

The safety of our pupils, staff and visitors is our priority and, if we are unable to welcome families in person in the Michaelmas term, we will ensure families of children shortlisted for interview and/or who receive the offer of a place are able to visit in person in early 2021.

  • Please book using the link above.
  • You will be able to virtually visit each individual year group areas and all sections of the school.
  • Our Principal will speak throughout the morning.
  • Teachers, pupils and our Admissions team will be available to answer all the questions you, and your child, may have.

Weekday tours

We offer weekday tours that take place relatively frequently, usually on a Tuesday morning but days may vary. Tours are aimed at parents rather than children. These tours are currently suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic but we will update this page when we are able to offer new dates.

When tours do run, numbers for our tours are strictly limited and priority is given to families with children who will sit the entrance assessments most imminently. Booking is essential and can be done by contacting the Admissions Office at our Junior School (


Private tours

Private visits to our Junior School can be arranged for those moving to the area, who currently live too far to attend our open day, social distancing regulations permitting.
