Highgate School is now full open, however social distancing measures are in place and we are keeping pupils safe via separate ‘bubbles’, masks being worn between lessons and hand sanitisers placed at frequent places across the School.


We understand that this can be an unsettling time for pupils and if anyone requires emotional support, please contact counselling@highgateschool.org.uk.


We welcome any questions from parents as always via communications@highgateschool.org.uk. Additional help can also be sought below:

The Department for Education coronavirus (COVID-19) helpline is available to answer questions about coronavirus (COVID-19) relating to education and children’s social care. Staff, parents and young people can contact this helpline by calling: Phone: 0800 046 8687, with opening hours: Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm and Weekends from 10am to 4pm.
