Heathfield School was founded in 1899 to offer girls a first-class education. An independent boarding and day school, today it combines traditional values with up-to-date teaching and facilities and offers a very friendly welcome. In 2018 Heathfield was rated excellent in every category by the Independent Schools Inspectorate.
At Heathfield we have been running our own summer courses for over 40 years: we are passionate about encouraging and inspiring the young women of tomorrow by giving them the opportunity to enjoy excellent education, activities and new experiences here. We welcome girls from around the world on our British Council Accredited English Language Summer School, and girls from the local area and across Britain on our Activities Summer Camp. As sports and activities are often shared, many international friendships are made.
The safety, welfare and well-being of your daughter are our prime concern at all times. We are a small course offering personal care and Heathfield has an exceptionally high staff-student ratio of 1:6; a nurse is on duty at all times.
What also makes Heathfield very special is the sense of continuity and the family atmosphere. The Directors and many of the staff have worked together for years and girls return summer after summer. Some go on to become Student Assistants and Helpers and then staff and they all welcome our new girls each summer.
