School profile

Saracens High School

Saracens High School is a free school that opened in 2018 and will be full in September 2024.
With strong ties to the wider Saracens organisation, we base all we do on the values Discipline, Hard Work, Honesty, and Humility, and our approach focuses on character development and making memories, as much as outstanding academic attainment. We aim to develop aspirational life-long learners, who will thrive in their chosen career path, embracing our values, and demonstrating a strong moral purpose and a desire to make a positive contribution to society and their local community. (Hear Paul Dix speak about Saracens High School here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Utm3ocGeII). Our first cohort of pupils who sat GCSEs last summer achieved excellent outcomes, including a contextual value-added score placing us in the top 2% in the country, with no pupil premium gap (60% of pupils were pupil premium).

We serve a wonderfully diverse community in the Colindale area of North London, which also has exceptional transport links with the Northern Line (Colindale) and mainline trains (Mill Hill Broadway), and easy access to main commute routes (M1, A1, A41).
