I loved trampolining and gym and evenings with my new friends I made there.

Indoor and Pool Sports
There is no problem if it rains occasionally in the summer as Heathfield has excellent indoor facilities. Activities staff ensure that all girls have plenty of opportunities for games, sports and swimming and we also hold regular competitions and tournaments. Cheerleading has recently become a very popular activity, combining gym and dance. A small fitness suite with treadmills, cross trainers and weights is available for use by the older senior girls.
We can offer such activities as trampolining and judo with specialist staff and the regular sports we include are:
- Basketball & volleyball
- Racquet sports – badminton, soft tennis & squash
- Table tennis
- Indoor hockey
- Quick cricket
- Dodge ball
- King ball
- Crash mat rounders
In the 25 metre pool as well as swimming and having fun with floats and doing pool games, girls can try aqua aerobics, aqua gym, water volleyball and kayaking. Swimming galas include a variety of races and relays. There are always two trained Life Guards on duty.
