At Highgate, we constantly think of creative ways to make our whole learning experience inspiring. If we develop this pattern early on, we ignite a spark for the love of learning which can be taken through life.

Sally Hancock, Principal

Highgate Pre-Prep is for pupils aged 4-7 years. In September 2023, we became a three-form entry school with Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes, with a total intake of 180 pupils.

Our Pre-Prep is based on Bishopswood Road in Highgate, in a light, airy and colourful building. The school building has undergone improvements to support the transition to a three-form entry. A two-storey extension provides three new classrooms (pictured) and a library with terrace. Our pupils have their own dining hall, a covered play space, and secure viewing area to observe the green planted roof.

Our pupils are closely supervised at all times and a positive, inclusive and mutually supportive atmosphere is promoted across the school.

‘My son reports back excitedly each day on what he has learnt. He is also throwing himself into activities such as music, drama, and PE – all of which are taught with enthusiasm and a great sense of fun.’
