About Highbury Fields School

Highbury Fields School community is united by a firm commitment to the values of mutual respect and tolerance.  Our school is a culturally rich community that reflects and celebrates the social diversity of London.  Whilst students are supported and encouraged in their individual talents and ambitions, Highbury Fields is characterised by a strong feeling of togetherness and this spirit permeates everything we do, whether it be in the classroom, on the sports field or on stage.

All in the Highbury Fields School community are deeply ambitious for our students and firmly believe that every child in our care can, and will, achieve social and academic excellence.   Our strength in understanding our students and developing them into safe, happy and confident young women is the cornerstone of our students’ success.  GCSE results are consistently in the top 5% of schools in the country for progress and our sixth formers have all progressed to university or further training for the last five years.  Many of these students read their degrees at Russell Group universities.

We are dedicated to truly knowing every child in our care and our ethos enables students to enjoy their learning, challenge themselves and to think creatively.  As a consequence, Highbury Fields students are determined but compassionate; independent but community minded.  They understand both local and wider society and are ready to contribute to both.
