Welcome to Highdown School and Sixth Form Centre serving the communities of Caversham and Emmer Green to the north of Reading, Berkshire.
Headteacher, Rachel Cave
We're looking forward to meeting Y11s and prospective students at our 6th Form open evening on 3/11/16. https://t.co/5XtQCw9yp6
Have a good break next week everyone.
A sad day today at Highdown. The last of the ducks flew the nest. We wish them well for the future. https://t.co/yEZJFPgn24
This week's 'word of the week' is VORACITY. Students can earn a P1 if they use it appropriately verbally at school or in written work.
Please remember the academy is closed tomorrow (19/10/16) for students.
“Highdown makes school life as good as it could be”
“The behaviour of students is good. They are polite and courteous to each other and to adults. Students are punctual to their lessons and treat their school with respect.”
“Students have strong relationships with their teachers.”
“Students are well presented and proud to members of the school community”
“Students feel safe and well looked after.”
“Teaching has greatly improved since the previous inspection. It is now at least good across the school and students make good progress in a broad range of subjects.”
“Teachers know their students well and use information about students’ progress to identify where students are underachieving. Additional help or support is then quickly provided to help these students to catch up.”
