Highbury Grove is a vibrant, inclusive and successful school with a clear sense of identity and purpose.

Our commitment to excellent teaching and good practice in education has earned us a longstanding record of outstanding results and we continue to raise standards year after year. In 2013/14 we were named as one of the 100 most improved schools in the country and the progress our students make from 11-16 puts us in the top 5% of schools nationally.

We encourage and celebrate achievement in all aspects of school life. There is a well-established sixth form with the students very much part of our whole school community. Last year 100% of students achieved their qualifications. Many of our students go on to study at top Russell Group universities including Oxford and Cambridge. Students are positive role models for the lower school, many with important positions of responsibility.

Excellent facilities are provided in a dedicated sixth form area including study room, common room, teaching rooms and IT suites. There is also a dedicated team of tutors and staff that work specifically with sixth form students.

Highbury Grove is a designated Music Specialist School in recognition of our dynamic provision in music. We are the founding school of the Music in Secondary Schools Trust (MiSST) – The Andrew Lloyd Webber Programme, and are committed to improving the chances of lifelong success for students through our programme of music. The programme grants successful applicants in the Sixth Form a scholarship entitling them to free musical tuition of up to an hour a week. Alongside this there is an intensive programme of musical support and extension.

In January 2010, we moved into our fantastic, state of the art school. The new buildings incorporate the latest technology, sustainable architecture and the most advanced resources.
