Palmers Green High School, founded in 1905 by Miss Alice Hum, has provided girls with an exceptional education for over 100 years. At Palmers Green High School, we specialise in educating girls, challenging and guiding them to achieve their full potential within our warm and friendly school environment.
The school motto, “By Love Serve One Another” was carefully chosen and it still epitomises our special ethos where individuals are nurtured, successes are celebrated and their contribution to the community is greatly valued. We provide an inspiring, challenging and supportive environment through which all pupils are given opportunities to be inquisitive, independent and develop a lifelong love of learning.
Palmers Green High School is a very special ‘through-school’ where pupils progress in a familiar setting and benefit from seamless transitions across the key stages in the Nursery, Prep, Junior and Senior Schools. There is an authentic feeling of being one family where strong friendships are formed and extend beyond year groups. We are very proud of our school and would be delighted to welcome you to one of our open days or throughout the year for a personalised tour dependent on Government guidelines. You can also enjoy a selection of on-line virtual tours here.

At Palmers Green High School, all sections of the school (Nursery, Preps, Juniors and Seniors) enjoy being part of our ‘one school’ community. Preps use the same facilities as the GCSE pupils in some subjects, e.g. Art, Music, PE and D&T, and Juniors enjoy Science in the laboratories. Throughout Palmers Green High School, small class sizes and excellent teaching enable rapid progress, whilst exciting extra-curricular activities encourage girls to develop into well-rounded individuals.
Recognising the importance of developing well-rounded individuals, we offer an exciting programme of extra-curricular activities. PGHS takes every opportunity to nurture your daughter’s passions and develop her skills, providing over 80 clubs per week.
On the 8th May 1905 Palmers Green High School began when Miss Alice Hum welcomed twelve pupils to her School. The School was originally located in Number 1 Osborne Road, Palmers Green, but in 1918 moved to Avondale Hall in Hoppers Road, Winchmore Hill, by which time the roll had grown to 300 pupils.
