Sport at Highgate Sixth Form

We offer a range of sporting opportunities and facilities, plus a unique curriculum and approach to training, to all our sixth formers.

From the age of 4 to 18, all pupils are taught sports and exercise by specialist coaches and teachers to ensure a high quality experience. Our 23 acres of green space and playing fields are complemented by facilities at our Mallinson Sports Centre, equipped with a gym, 25-metre indoor pool, courts for squash, tennis and Eton Fives, dance studio, an all-weather pitch, cricket nets, and our location next to Hampstead Heath.

All of the sports coaches are so lovely and friendly, I've made some great friends through SpEx —Zara, Y13 Pupil


Our sport and exercise curriculum aims to maximise participation, promote enjoyment and ensure progression. Sixth formers have at least one afternoon a week devoted to the sport of their choice.
