Highgate School

High-energy, fast-paced and progressive: Highgate is the real deal, filled with passionate staff and charming students. With its pre-prep and prep very much part of the same pack, this destination triumvirate educates a mega 1,850 north Londoners the whole way from three to 18.

We love the juxtaposition of old and new here: the glorious 19th-century chapel side by side with the wondrous state-of-the-art junior school; a nicely traditional curriculum set against a (cancelled) plan to introduce gender-neutral loos. It’s all very Highgate, with the school’s atmosphere summed up rather nicely by the head during last year’s leavers’ speech: ‘You don’t have to be dull and conformist to be proud.’...

    Highgate offers a generous bursary suite that currently supports 88 children across the school with up to 100 percent fee remission (at least half of these students receive between 90 and 100 percent support). These awards are available to new entrants at 11+ and 16+ and are subject to a full financial history and annual review – the school estimates that a gross family income of below £30,000 would qualify for a full-fee award, while a gross income of below £80,000 would merit some level of support.

    The School also offers one ‘Key Worker Bursary’ each year to a child whose parents are key workers (i.e someone who is employed by the public sector, in a frontline role, delivering an essential public service such as a doctor, teacher or member of the armed forces). These awards are still means tested, but with a more generous top-end cap.

    For more information about all of the bursarial support available, please see the School website:
