Heathfield School

Heathfield is a vibrant, busy and inclusive community where girls thrive.

We provide an environment where a girl’s childhood will be happy and secure; where she has the opportunity to discover her unique passions and talents and accordingly, to develop the self-belief and confidence required to enable her to succeed. Life in the 21st Century demands spirit, resilience and adaptability and we are focused on developing skilled and positive individuals well-equipped for their next steps, whether that is to higher education or the workplace. We are ambitious for our students and our bespoke approach enables them to succeed in many different areas.

Whilst our small class sizes, excellent facilities and a teacher-pupil ratio of 1:4 ensure all students receive engaging teaching and individual attention, our teaching and learning doesn’t just take place in the classroom. Girls here discover they have talents in areas previously unexplored. Our wide and diverse range of co-curricular subjects and activities evolve every year to accommodate new trends and interests. This ‘have a go’ attitude is infectious and filters down from the upper year groups, which means that girls have the confidence to take risks – Heathfield is a safe place to try new things. Girls learn where their strengths and challenges lie and are enabled to improve on both.

Boarders and day students alike benefit from Heathfield’s 24/7 boarding environment. When the school day finishes, there is time for the many on site co-curricular opportunities , and staff are always on hand to help with Prep. Day girls stay on to enjoy the activities with their boarding friends whether that’s trampolining, gymnastics, debating, drama, music or sport. At the week-ends, there is a diverse and well-structured age appropriate programme of engaging activities, trips and events which day girls regularly return for and join in with.

Bursaries & Scholarships

All applications for bursaries are considered on the basis of individual circumstances and are means-tested.

Entrance Bursaries are for new applicants to the School for any year group. Every applicant must meet the School’s admission criteria. Parents must have registered their daughter and paid the registration fee. Parents must be domiciled in the UK.

Entrance Bursaries are typically awarded between 10% and 50% of tuition and boarding fees, although larger bursaries of up to 100% are sometimes offered, depending on the financial, compassionate or other pertinent circumstances of applicants. The costs of all “Extras” must be paid in full by the pupil’s parents.

On account of the limited funds available to the School, not every eligible application for a bursary will be successful. Bursaries can be applied for in addition to a scholarship or on their own.

Applications for financial support are also considered for girls already at Heathfield, where there is a change of family circumstance, or sudden and unforeseen need leading to financial difficulty.

Bursaries are not automatically carried through to Sixth Form.

Application forms are available from the Bursar, Mrs Rachel Frier – bursar@heathfieldschool.net

Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the Bursar to discuss matters in confidence so she can assist and guide your application.

The deadline for submission of the completed Bursary application form and supporting paperwork is 15 October in the year prior to anticipated entry.
