Work with us

Our attractive North London location is a short distance from central London and adjacent to Hampstead Heath. Transport links include good bus routes and the Northern line of the Underground, meaning central London is just twenty minutes away.

We provide full induction and support for new staff to ensure a smooth transition for all. We encourage our employees to further develop their personal skill set, so frequently help fund independent study courses.

Highgate staff are welcoming, supportive, and always put the pupils' wellbeing first. —Mr Zucker, Deputy Principal, Highgate Pre-Prep
