Welcome to the High Down Junior School section of the website, which is an excellent example of how our thriving school works as a community and celebrates our successes, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.
High Down is a happy place, with a strong reputation for being a very caring and high attaining school which provides a rich and inspiring education. Our dedicated staff have the highest aspirations for our children and are committed to nurturing and developing children’s learning. Each child is valued for their own talents, strengths and personality and we encourage the children to succeed and reach their potential, to have high self-esteem and a belief that they can achieve. Parents are the first educators of their children and are welcomed to work closely in partnership with the school to support their child’s learning and development.
Our motto is Believing, Achieving, Learning for Life. We want our pupils to be inquisitive and develop a passion for learning that lasts for the rest of their lives. Our role is to help them blossom and grow: learning new skills, having new opportunities and challenges. In four years, when they transfer to secondary school, we want our pupils to be well-prepared, responsible, confident, mature and have the happiest memories of their time with us.
