Welcome to Highgate
Primary School

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.

Allotment 1

This week children in Year 1 helped plant the school’s new allotment. Lots of vegetables were planted including tomatoes, lettuce, onions, chard and, most exciting of all, runner beans, which will grow up bamboo canes to make some bean dens.

The school recently acquired the new site within the allotments behind Gaskell Road. The plot was overgrown and neglected, but was cleared with help from Robert and his team from Hampstead Heath. A working party of parents and staff levelled and dug over the site to get it ready for the raised beds.

Just before half term a team of Highgate Primary Dads arrived to put together the beds. Large sleepers were locked together to make the bed in the centre of the plot. Dusan made the surrounding beds at school, which were carried over and put in place. These were filled with grit and manure and after many hours digging (and a few burgers) the school allotment was ready for planting.

This is a great addition to our school. Thank you to everyone who has helped get the site for a summer of growing.
