Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to Highbury Quadrant Community School. We live by the core values of Respect Achievement and Positivity. These core values are evident in every part of school life and through them we aim to challenge and support all children. We aim for our pupils to be curious and independent learners who have the confidence to aim high in life. We develop a passion for learning inspired by high quality teaching. We also use our shared values as a foundation for building a harmonious community where all individuals are valued and work together collaboratively towards the same goals.

Our curriculum is designed to excite and stimulate pupils to learn about the world in which they live. Our pupils enjoy a creative approach to learning and personal development. From the Early Years onwards we foster strong characteristics of effective learning and learning behaviour. Children experience learning with and from each other. We aim to build on individual strengths and talents and expect all children in our school to reach the best possible standards in attainment and be ready to accept the challenge of moving on to secondary school when the time comes. The staff and governors are firmly committed to equality of opportunity and ensure that barriers to learning are removed so that every learner can achieve their potential.

The leadership structure ensures that the best use is made of all our resources and is focused on setting high expectations and securing high standards.

I hope you find the information you require and please do not hesitate to contact the school directly if any further assistance is required. General enquires can be emailed to Jennie Haughton via the link at the top of this page.
