Hi. We're considering moving to Highgate and wondered if anyone had any knowledge of Highgate primary school - the state one not private. It seems to have good SATS and a good Ofsted, but what I have gleaned from other mums in the area is that people aim to go to St Michael's or private, and that its quite undersubscribed. We're not CoE, so I guess Highgate primary would be the state option. Does anyone have children there, and are they happy and learning well? Why isn't it more popular?
I have known several children who have been very happy, they can be undersubscribed, but it seems to be more in the top end of the school, as there is a bit of a problem getting into good secondary schools, so lots of people move. There is a new headmaster starting in September, he was previously the deputy head at Rhodes Avenue in Muswell Hill.
