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.

Steel Pans Workshops

As part of our Black History Month celebrations, Sharren Grey from the Steel Pan Agency led a vey special assembly this week in which the whole school was mesmerised by the sounds and energy of the steel pans. Over the next two days, the children from Highgate Primary and Blanche Nevile enjoyed wonderful workshops by Shareen. She helped children play together in unison to create a warm and melodic Caribbean lilt. We all had a brilliant time and both staff and children alike benefited greatly from the positive, colourful sounds reverberating through the school.
