Welcome to Highgate

Highgate Primary is a happy and successful two-form entry community school where there is great enthusiasm for fun and learning from both the pupils and a highly committed and experienced staff team. Adults are referred to by their first name and we have a no-uniform policy.

Music, art and whole-school performances, philosophy, science and sport are all highly valued and give our children many opportunities to shine. The Highgate Primary curriculum reflects our children’s interests and enables them to achieve standards of which we are extremely proud. The aim is for our children to move through life with confidence, excellent skills, good friendships and happy memories of primary school.

Parents are always welcome to come and visit Highgate Primary where they can meet the children and staff and find out more about our school.

Tom Davies visits Highgate Primary

Tom DaviesOn Monday 26th January we were very privileged to have a visit from British and Commonwealth Judo gold medalist, Tom Davies, who was here to launch a programme called ‘Be the Best you can Be!’ The aim is to develop a culture of coaching within the school and promote children to develop the skills and confidence that will support them to follow their dream.

Tom entertained the children at Assembly, recounting stories from his childhood and his journey to becoming an international sportsman. The children loved watching Tom demonstrate a rather dramatic judo move on William, who was subsequently thrown onto his back by Tobiko in Year 5! Tom inspired both adults and children alike with the message that anything is possible if you love what you do and practice hard enough.

“As long as you focus on your dreams and goals, surround yourself with positive people and don’t take any notice of negativity, you can be whatever you want to be. It is how we strive for our goals that makes us people.” Tom Davies
