International Summer School and Summer Camp for Girls

Summer School

Heathfield Summer School is for overseas girls, aged 8-17, who enjoy a very full programme of English lessons, excursions, activities and sports.  It also includes English with Style, our culture, etiquette, fashion and well-being course for girls aged 14 to 17.

Summer Camp

Heathfield Summer Camp is for British girls, aged 7-15. Girls can come on a day or a boarding basis and they follow a wide-ranging programme of activities and sports. We can also offer a limited number of places for overseas girls with a high level of fluency in English.

Heathfield School was founded in 1899 to offer girls a first-class education and is one of the few remaining all-girl boarding schools in England. It combines traditional values with up-to-date teaching and facilities – and a very friendly welcome.

At Heathfield we have been running our own summer courses for 40 years. We welcome girls from overseas on our British Council Accredited English Language Summer School, the only all girls English course in the UK. International students are joined by girls from the local area and across Britain on our Activities Summer Camp. As sports and activities are often shared, many friendships across the world are formed.

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 a lot of the staff have worked together for years and many girls return summer after summer. Some go on to become Student Assistants and Helpers and they welcome all our new girls each summer.
