Heathfield Community School
Heathfield is an oversubscribed, mixed 11 – 16 community comprehensive school, set in an attractive semi-rural location, which prides itself on providing an excellent education within a happy and supportive environment. “All staff without fail feel valued and appreciated for their contribution” – Investors in People Report 2001
Recently the school has been redesignated as a specialist Arts College and has just opened a £3m Arts Centre on the site.
Visitors and friends of the school often comment on the very warm and lively atmosphere that exists at Heathfield. It is certainly a very happy school, a place where we expect students to take responsibility for themselves and for each other, where any form of bullying is totally unacceptable and where individuals are encouraged to thrive.
We consistently achieve excellent academic results with students from right across the ability range. Our students want to succeed and we enjoy very strong support from parents. We are also lucky in having such a dynamic and committed team of staff who provide an extraordinary range of opportunities for every young person to achieve success in extra-curricular activities. At Heathfield, we really do believe in the value of educating "the whole child".
