Welcome to our Pre-Prep

Highgate Pre-Preparatory School is for pupils aged 3-7. We have over 150 pupils, from Nursery to Reception.

‘Our pupils look forward to coming to school and regard Highgate as a safe, happy and exciting place. We encourage and support our pupils to become confident and resilient individuals who develop a love of learning.’

Diane Hecht, Principal

Highgate Pre-Prep is currently for pupils aged 3 – 7, and we have around 150 pupils within our Nursery and Reception classes, and Years 1 and 2. However, from September 2021, entry to our Pre-Prep will be at 4+ (Reception), rather than 3+ (Nursery).

Our Pre-Prep is based on Bishopswood Road in Highgate, in a light, airy and colourful building. We overlook the open spaces of our sports grounds and have our own playground, which was enlarged in 2016. At that time, four of our classrooms were refurbished and enlarged, creating a separate music room and learning support room. Our School medical centre is next door, with our nurse available for any queries.

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

‘Excellent teaching and great teachers within the Pre-Prep. Very encouraging and close rapport with pupils.’
