I come back to Heathfield for many reasons. But there is one that is very big: I enjoy reuniting with friends from previous years and meeting new girls. Each time I have returned I appreciate the friendly atmosphere among new and old students.

What the Girls Say!
At the end of their first week we give all girls questionnaires to help us to know how they are enjoying the course and to see what we can do to help. At the end of their visit we ask them to tell us about different aspects of their whole stay to help us make Heathfield even better. Here are some of the responses from girls of different ages and different countries and including both new girls and returners.
Heathfield is a very good summer school because I made friends from other nationalities and spoke English with them all the time. The activities in classes and houses are great because you can just speak in English.

I think Heathfield is one of the best places to make friends from round the world and the staff are so friendly.

Our project class this year was perfect as we got a choice on what to do so we could challenge ourselves. As it was preparing something for the website, it will be good experience for the future.
