Testimonials


My name is Thusi and I have been at Highgate for 9 years. I like the teachers at my school, who are friendly and teach in a fun way. You know everyone here. You can mix with students of different age groups.
Thusi
My name is Nefeli. I am in year 9. The school is small but I think that the reason we are all so happy is because we all know each other. Small groups are beneficial because we learn so much better and we get a lot of personal attention.
Nefeli
My name is Kyle. I am in in year 9. Everyone is friendly, respectful towards each other. We are an international school from different places of the globe. All the activities that the school offers are really great and most of us feel that everyone in our community cares. The school offers homework club and many out of school activities. It is such a positive environment.

My name is Maggie, I am 14 years old and I come from Poland. I have been at Highgate for the last 3 years, and I really like being here. When I enter the school gates I am important, as this community is part of all of us. I have many friends, and everyone cares for each other. We all get individual attention, and all the teachers inspire and support us. My school is like a home to me and to all of us students. We are so lucky to be here.

My name is Mutasem. I have just joined the school and I already made many friends.
Mutasem
A friendly atmosphere, a caring and safe environment. The School has managed to bring together young, energetic, qualified, knowledgeable and dedicated teachers, specialists and admin staff. The support of teachers has been individual and outstanding. My son has now developed new healthy and balanced lifestyle habits and his self-confidence has grown significantly.
Olga Bystrova | Parent
My children are in Highgate for the 5th year and they love it. Academic side is very good, teachers are professional and really love children. There are also many after school and during school activities for general child development. The environment in the school is very friendly and family like. I can see from my kids that they are taught to love learning not just for the grades. Also what I like about the school is that each child is individual and is seen as individual.
Natalia Polyntseva | Parent
My child has developed so many skills within a relatively short time and his progress is tremendous. The head-teacher is always accessible and willing to practically support parents and pupils. Private education at its best!
Andreas Nicolaou | Parent
Pubic Speaking: Pubic Speaking was really good for me. It actually did help me a lot. Ok, it didn't get me more self-confidence because i already have too much hehe , but it did teach me a lesson about life.
Alvaro Hergueta Year 8
Pubic Speaking: For me, the public speaking course was not only enlightening, showing me techniques for speaking to a large crowd, small group or even individuals which I was previously oblivious to, but also allowed me to understand how I as an individual needed to prepare for a speech. Finally, the course also helped me control my nerves when speaking publicly. I found the tutorial very helpful, and actually, unexpectedly quite enjoyable. In my opinion, the hands on approach of Mr. Leonidas and the school's administration assisted our improvement greatly.
Chloe Savvidou Year 10
Pubic Speaking: Public speaking was a great experience that allowed me to be truly dependent on myself after practising over and over again, working through the problems that we encountered. It truly was a fun and extremely important life lesson to learn.
Jonny Hart Year 9
Pubic Speaking: It helped me with raising my confidence
Ino Polykarpou Year 8
Pubic Speaking: It helped me with facing my fear and helped teach me how to talk to a group of people and not stress out.
Thusi Rohan Year 8
Pubic Speaking: The public speaking gave me self-confidence
Maggie Tomaszewska Year 8
Pubic Speaking: It helped me be more organised and improved my behaviour.
Enyalios Papadopoulos Year 8
Pubic Speaking: Public speaking has helped me open up to a number of people and share my opinions and helped me overcome my fear of talking to big numbers of people
Alex Christofi Year 8
Pubic Speaking: The public speaking competition helped me feel more courageous when talking to bigger groups of people.
