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.

Story of the week

30 Nov 2015
On 21st October, Highgate Primary and Blanche Nevile celebrated their Harvest Festival with a truly memorable and moving assembly which captured the warmth and diversity of the school. Once again the hall was filled to bursting with family and friends to hear the children sing beautifully, with enthusiasm and infectious energy.
The choir sang ‘Don’t Worry Be Happy’ and the whole school sang and signed ‘What a Wonderful World’ and a seasonal song sung in Mandarin. Both school choirs and all the children performed beautifully and should be very proud of themselves.  
A heart-felt thanks to all the parents and children for their generous, colourful donations which adorned the stage and were sincerely appreciated by local residents and the Muswell Hill Drop-In Centre for the homeless.
A huge thank you to Hilla for directing the Assembly and to Rhoda for the Mandarin song. As ever, thank you very much to the PSA for their wonderful display.
