Welcome to Highover J.M.I. and Nursery.
The Website aims to provide much of the information that you will need about our school. No booklet, brochure or website, no matter how full, will ever substitute for meeting the people who will be working with your child during their time in Primary education.

At Highover, we strongly believe in the importance of developing a strong partnership between home and school. This is essential if the children are to meet their full potential and grow as individuals.
Do take the time to come in and meet us. I hold a coffee morning on the first Thursday of every month at 9 am in the staffroom. I would love to see you there to celebrate our successes and work together to make the school even better!
Tours of the school are not run for in-year admissions unless spaces are available.  However, parents are very welcome to join the Autumn and Spring Term tours held for prospective Reception and Nursery parents.
I hope you enjoy finding out more about us as you explore our website.

  • Parent Teacher Consultation update We are aware that there have been some issues regarding agreed appointment times.  This appears to have arisen where parents have used personal email addresses rather the agreed Google Apps for Education parent log in.  This seems to have particularly affected these parents as their personal calendars are not synced to the correct time.  If you have booked through your personal email address, you may need to be prepared to wait or rearrange your appointment should there be a problem.

Herts County Council have advised us that the work will be taking place on the slip roads on the other side of Cambridge Road only and the main road should remain open throughout the day.  If we receive any further information, we will update you as soon as possible.
