I am delighted and privileged to be the founding head-teacher of the Highgate Hill House School. This is a new School created specifically to provide a unique and enjoyable learning experience for young people aged 5 – 16 years with special needs. We believe that “learning should be fun” and that every student should be “happy and successful”. This is why we have taken the very best school practices and built them into our school – our curriculum offer is therefore broad, balanced, relevant and personalised to meet individual student needs. Our approach fits perfectly with the new EHC plan that encourages partnership working, personalisation, accountability and best value for money. We therefore welcome parental and carer engagement and feedback on all aspects of the school. Our success will be measured by our student’s happiness and success in school and in later life.
