Anyone have children that go here? Or know of any? Are they happy?

And - really interested to know - where approx the kids live? It has a large catchment, but I’d like a “neighbourhood”-type school and I get the impression it might not be one?

I know a few people with children at Highgate primary and they’ve all been very happy with it. It does have a large catchment for London as lots of parents in Highgate send their children private. I went to playgroups there and always thought it had a lovely community feel - was too far for my kids but would have been very happy for them to go there.

Thank you orange! Did your friends live on the Highgate side? Just trying to figure out where the majority of kids tend to live.

They live north of the school - towards East Finchley.

They live in Archway ,Highgate ,East Finchley ,Hornsey,or Turnpike Lane IME.
My children went there fir a while. The behaviour was terrible in the class tbh. Lovely productions though.

That’s interesting! Sounds like they’re from quite far.

Out of interest, did you take your children out because of behaviour stuff? Or because they went to senior school / you moved away?

It's a good school..no uniforms..first names for teachers...very creative...everyone learning sign language. We had to.move at that time. It was probably just one or two 'characters' Re behaviour.
Very international. Over 100 languages'spoken in the playground.
I think it's nicer than st Michaels which is more shouty and traditional.
