I learned to play hockey and I like it when we do House sports competitions because it’s very cool.

Outdoor Sports and Games
Heathfield has extensive and beautiful grounds and we make the most of them by holding lots of games, competitions and events throughout the course including treasure and scavenger hunts and orienteering competitions.
On the playing fields we offer a whole range of big team sports and athletic competitions as well as fun field or wide games. These include capture the flag, big ball and the crocodile egg hunt – a rather wet event with water balloons!
Depending on the summer we hold Heathfield Olympic Games and World Cups, mixing British and overseas girls from around the world in the teams. We have also held international Gladiators, Silly Sports and a Highland Games.
Tennis is a very popular sport and many girls choose to take our private tennis coaching option. And for those who have never played them we can offer an introduction to lacrosse, netball and hockey.
Heathfield sports include:
