Visit Highgate

See for yourself

Open mornings

  • We offer a number of weekday open mornings during term time. These start at 8.45am and conclude by 10.45am. Numbers are strictly limited and, in the Michaelmas term, priority is given to families of children sitting the entrance assessments that December. Booking is essential and is only possible online while spaces remain.
  • Open Mornings up to the end of the Summer term have unfortunately been cancelled in light of the ongoing situation with COVID-19. Please check back for more dates soon.  We will be rescheduling cancelled events, virtually if necessary, as soon as we are able, giving priority to families looking at 2021 entry, and will be in touch with the families who registered for these.
  • At our open mornings you will hear from our Head, enjoy refreshments and have a personal tour led by pupils.
  • Children are welcome to attend and will have the opportunity to quiz a teacher or two, whilst parents attend our Head’s talk and Q&A session.
  • We look forward to meeting you!

Annual Saturday Open Day

Our Open Day allows you to discover what Highgate has to offer before making your application. If you are considering 11+ entry at Highgate, then our open day lets you view facilities, hear from our Head, and talk to current staff and pupils.

  • Our Saturday 3 October 2020 Open Day will open for booking online in Summer 2020.
  • We encourage parents and children to attend. Please book online in advance. Your place, and specific start time, will be confirmed by email.
  • Our open day begins at the Mills Centre, with self-guided tours that take you across our entire site. You will be able to visit each individual subject area, while prospective pupils can take part in some activities.
  • Our Head will speak to groups of parents throughout the morning.
  • Teachers, pupils and our Admissions team will be available to answer all the questions you, and your child, may have.


Private tours

Private visits to our Senior 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.
