Heathfield School

By August 8, 2019

Girls First’ is what we are all about at Heathfield.

We are a school where every girl is known. Research demonstrates that students do best when their achievement is supported by strong relationships. Whilst Heathfield is well-known for its excellent pastoral care, we also enable pupils to reach whatever goal they are aiming for – and there’s a wide range. Pupils this summer left with places at leading Russell Group universities including Bristol, Durham, Edinburgh Exeter, Newcastle and Queen Mary University, London to study a diverse range of subjects. These include Medicine, Veterinary Medicine & Science, Economics, Archaeology and Classical Civilizations, Arabic and History and Film Studies. Students have also gone on to study Fine Art, Textile Design and Drama.

In the 2018 summer exams, 70% of pupils were awarded A* – B grades at A Level with 89% of pupils achieving all A*- C grades. At GCSE, 42% were awarded the top 9-7 and A*- A grades and 99% 9-5 and A* – C.

This year, Heathfield are in the top 8% of all schools in England and Wales (nationally representative sample based on pupils who entered the school in Form I) for adding value to a pupil’s GCSE results.

Set in 36 acres of beautiful grounds, pupils make full use of our extensive facilities which include a new STEM facility, a performing arts centre, a 25m heated indoor pool, 5 lacrosse pitches, 6 tennis/netball courts, a cross country track, large sports hall, dance studio, a state-of-the-art digital recording studio and fitness suite. Girls compete successfully in many sports including Lacrosse, Netball, Swimming, Tennis, Athletics and various Equestrian disciplines.

Heathfield has a reputation as a creative powerhouse – with five Good Schools Guide Awards for the Arts. It also excels in drama and music with pupils regularly going on to RADA and LAMDA.

Heathfield provides an exciting environment where the girls build life-long friendships and fantastic memories.
