The Highgate School Museum tells the story of Highgate School through documents, artefacts, photographs and paintings. It opens a window on the past, showing school life through the centuries, our relationship with Highgate Village, and how we endured two world wars. Exhibits include a Royal Charter of Queen Elizabeth I, an 1860s slate for taking the school register of attendance, World War I letters, photographs documenting the School’s evacuation to Devon, shrapnel from the V-1 flying bomb which landed on our Senior Field in June 1944 and art by Sir Kyffin Williams RA and Anthony Green RA.
The Museum is open to mark the start and end of the Highgate Festival. Collect your Festival map from us and leaflets of local heritage sites.
