About The Project

Highlands School is one of the first in the country to have been built under a Private Finance Initiative. The London Borough of Enfield first identified a need for a new secondary school in the late 1960s but was unable to raise enough funds to undertake such a large project, even though the community had grown significantly. However, with the introduction of PFI, the borough was given an opportunity to achieve its goal.

 

Highlands School was completed in 2000 and has so far provided accommodation for over 1300 secondary pupils each year. The concession will run until 31 August 2025.
