  Welcome to Highgate Wood School, a school which values all its members. We are a truly comprehensive school, and work hard to ensure that everybody is encouraged to achieve their best.

We want everyone to feel welcome, safe and secure in the school and believe that each of us has a valuable contribution to make to the school community and its continued success.

Our core values are embodied in the 4Cs - Courtesy, Consideration, Cooperation, and Contribution, the traditional human values of Respect and Honesty and the values bound up within a Growth Mindset: Perseverance and Hard Work.  It is through these values that we bring to life our mission statement: "Making a positive difference to students' achievements and experiences, maintaining the highest expectations and inspiring self belief."

The school seeks to create an environment in which all students can...

Feel valued and value others.
Become confident, self-reliant and caring members of society.
Understand themselves and develop a critical awareness of the world in which they live.
Work in a learning environment in which they feel safe and secure.
Make maximum use of the technology available to assist learning.
Have pride in their environment, work hard, behave respectfully and succeed.
