Visit Highgate

See for yourself

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.

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 (

Annual Saturday Open Day

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.

Our annual open day takes place at our Junior School on Bishopswood Road. You will be able to visit each individual year group area and see our co-curricular offerings, while prospective pupils can take part in some activities.

Our Principal will speak to groups of parents throughout the morning, while numerous pupils will be available to guide you around our state-of-the-art building. Junior School staff will be available to answer all questions you, and your child, may have. Our Admissions team will also be on hand to answer queries about the application and assessment process.

Bookings for the  Open Day taking place on 26 September 2021 will open during Summer 2020. Your place will be confirmed by email, with a further reminder sent a few days before. If guidance around COVID-19 and events/schools makes a physical open day an impossibility at that time, we will run virtual open events. Further details will follow in due course.

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. Private tours can also be arranged for anyone who needs to discuss their child’s special circumstances in more detail than is possible at an open day.
