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 3 to 18, all at Highgate are taught sports and exercise by specialist coaches and teachers to ensure a high quality experience. Our extensive playing fields are complemented by facilities at the Mallinson Sports Centre, by courts for squash, tennis and Eton Fives, by our all-weather pitch, by our cricket nets, and by our location next to Hampstead Heath.

Blessed with playing fields and space beyond the dreams of other London schools โ€”Good Schools Guide 2019


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.
