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 and we have around 160 pupils within our Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes. In 2021 we began the transition to a three-form entry and by the September 2023 intake, we will be a three-form entry school from Reception to Year 2 (180 pupils altogether).

Sally Hancock Highgate Pre-Prep

Our Pre-Prep is based on Bishopswood Road in Highgate, in a light, airy and colourful building. The school building is undergoing some improvements to support the transition to a three-form entry. A two-storey extension to the side will provide three new classrooms, a covered play space, a library with terrace, a new lift and secure viewing area for children to observe our new green planted roof.

Our pupils are closely supervised at all times and positive, inclusive and mutually supportive atmosphere is promoted across our Pre-Prep.

‘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.’

Wrap Around Care

We are delighted to offer extended hours of care for our pupils via third party agency Energy Kidz

From 7.30am until school starts at 8.40am, or from school finish at 3.30pm until 6.00pm, we can look after your little ones onsite at the Pre-Prep for extended hours. Snacks and drinks are provided and children can enjoy quiet time or outdoor fun depending on their need in the lead up to school or wind down from their day. There’s an additional charge for these extra hours and all information is available via the below link.
