Fairseat has been the Channing Junior School since 1926. It is housed in the Victorian family house built by Sir Sydney Waterlow, former Lord Mayor of London, and is situated in extensive gardens at the top of Highgate Hill with spectacular views over London. The house is well maintained with light, spacious and elegant rooms. Renovations have led to the provision of a music and drama studio, a flexible space for a practical room for DT, Art and Science and an IT room.

Fairseat provides a happy, stimulating and secure environment for some 183 girls aged from 4 to 11. Entrance is at 4+ and is selective. We aim to care for and value each girl as an individual and to do our utmost to bring out her particular talents and abilities as fully as we can. The broad-based curriculum recognises the importance of the core subjects of English, Maths and Science and delivery is through a mix of form teaching and subject specialism. The curriculum is supported by local trips and outings to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the capital. Drama, music, art and sport have a key place in the curriculum and we try to foster a culture of thoughtfulness and consideration for others.

Communication between the school and parents exists in different forms. Apart from regular Parents’ Evenings and a full report at the end of the school year, parents are encouraged to contact the staff whenever they feel necessary. A newsletter for each form outlining the curriculum for the forthcoming term, regular fortnightly Bulletins, term and yearly date lists are sent to parents to keep them informed of all activities at school that concern their daughter. The Channing Association is another vital part of the close relationship between home and school that we nurture. Through this the parents are able to support the school in numerous ways: help in the Library, on excursions, during Open Days as well as running a range of school events for girls and parents including a Firework Party, Summer Picnic and Founders’ Day Outing.
