I like photography and fashion because I have a lot of photos with my best friend from Azerbaijan in the costumes we made.

Photography and Fashion
A particular feature of Heathfield is being able to use the wonderful talents of some main school staff for Summer School and Summer Camp and so we introduced Photography and Fashion in 2010. They have been an enormous success with the girls.
Our photography teacher offers girls the chance to style and take studio portraits of themselves and their friends, to do outdoor photography and more abstract work and to turn some of their favourite shots into post cards and pictures. We also run a summer photography competition.
Heathfield also has a thriving fashion and textile department so it not surprising that Harper’s Bazaar recently headlined Heathfield as a ‘School with Style’. Girls on the summer courses can do design, experiment with materials and make their own costumes and decorate such things as T-shirts and bags. The girls are also taught how to walk with style and confidence and they enjoy participating in the very popular Dance and Fashion and Design Shows.
