Welcome from the headteacher
LATEST NEWS

Many congratulations to all those who received their exam results over the last week – a fantastic set of results!

Our A level results were up on last year with almost all who applied to university getting a place and the majority at their first choice.  Special congratulations to Chris O’Donnell who secured a place at Oxford to study Maths and Computing.

2014       2013

Points score per entry                               207         201

A*-B                                                              51%        42%

 

Our GCSE results are on a par with the best we have ever achieved, which is fantastic given that many other schools across the country have experienced significant falls.

76% of students achieved 5+ A*-C with English and Maths.

 

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OUR STUDENTS AND THEIR TEACHERS WHO WORKED VERY HARD TO ACHIEVE THESE RESULTS!!

I am writing to you inform you about Highlands 20 Books of Summer.  I have compiled a list of 20 recent books for teenagers which are gripping reads, see attached book list document. 

These brilliant books are available to borrow at the school library (closing Tuesday), Enfield libraries or to buy at your local Waterstones, via the Kindle store or any good bookshop stockists.

To tie in with the book list we are also launching Highlands Summer Reading Challenge, also attached.  The reading challenge asks readers 12 easy questions about their summer reading choices. Return the completed sheets in September to be in with a chance of winning a Cineworld voucher in a prize draw.

Please see below for details:
