The Senior School is situated in Highgate Village and has been there since 1565. In recent years the buildings have been extended and modernised. The playing fields are a few minutes walk away. Besides music and drama, there are more than thirty societies and clubs meeting on a regular basis as well as the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Young Enterprise, and the Combined Cadet Force. The Junior and Pre-Prep schools are situated in a very agreeable environment surrounded by playing fields and with the use of all the school’s facilities. From age eight pupils are encouraged to stay after school for clubs and other activities and those of all ages may have breakfast at school with their families.
