Admissions

Entry Procedure

Please contact the Admissions Team for information regarding entry to the school or to request a prospectus.  We hold regular Open Mornings but you are also welcome to arrange an individual visit.

Applicants must be registered with the school in order to sit for assessment.  Girls registered for entry to Heathfield at 11+ in Form I (Year 7) in 2019 will be invited to attend a Taster Day on 22 May 2018.

 

11+ and 13+

Girls registered for entry to Heathfield are invited to an Assessment Day in November of the year before proposed entry. Dates for 2019 entry have yet to be finalised.

11+ and 13+ candidates will be assessed in numeracy, verbal and non-verbal ability.  Our assessment is designed to evaluate potential rather than knowledge, tutoring or preparation is therefore unnecessary.  Candidates will also be invited to an interview and to participate in workshops.  They will be expected to perform well in their subsequent Common Entrance examination, where taken, although Common Entrance is not the main determining factor in the formal offer of a place.

Heathfield also offers Academic, Art, Drama, Music and Sport Scholarships.  For further details of these and how to apply, please contact registrar@heathfieldschool.net

 

16+

Sixth Form candidates will visit the school for assessment and interview and offers are made conditional on GCSE results, impression at interview and a school report.  Parents may also apply for their daughter to be considered for an Academic, Art, Drama, Music or Sport scholarship.

 

Deferred Entry at 13+

Parents of pupils whose daughters attend Prep Schools where the usual leaving age is 13, may prefer to apply for a place early at the 11+ stage and defer that entry until Form III (Year 9) at 13+.  We are happy to see any candidates who wish to do this up to eight and a half terms before entry. They would therefore apply for 13+ entry as early as the Autumn Term of Year 6, even though they are not intending to enter the school until Form III (Year 9) and would be assessed in the same way as 11+ candidates applying for the following academic year.

Candidates for deferred 13+ entry would be made an offer on the basis of Heathfield’s own test. They will also be expected to perform well in their subsequent Common Entrance examination, where taken, although Common Entrance is not the main determining factor in the formal offer of a place. Parents who accept the offer will be asked to pay a deposit. Acceptances are welcome from the point an offer is made.

 

Deposits

If parents accept the offer of a deferred place, we would ask them to pay the acceptance deposit of £1000 at the stage they accept the offer. This deposit is refundable until January 1 in the year prior to entry (i.e. 20 months before entry). After January 1 in the year prior to entry, all deposits already paid and subsequently paid become non-refundable. This is in line with the Code of Practice for Schools agreed to by all the bodies representing independent schools in the UK.

 

Contract for Educational Services (Parent Contract)

Cancellation Notice

If your contract with Heathfield School (the “School”) was formed entirely by means of distance communication (i.e. by post, fax or electronic communication) without a face to face meeting with a member of the School staff you may cancel the contract within 14 days of the date of acceptance.  The place was accepted when you returned the acceptance form with your payment of the Acceptance Deposit and the Additional Deposit (if applicable).

You have the right to cancel the Parent Contract without giving any reason.

To exercise your right to cancel, you must inform us at the School address of your decision to cancel this contract by a clear statement (e.g. a letter sent by post or fax, or an e-mail).  You may use the attached model cancellation form, or your own wording, if you prefer.

To meet the cancellation deadline you must send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.

 

Effects of Cancellation

a) Where we have provided educational services

If, following your acceptance of a place and payment of the Acceptance Deposit and the Additional Deposit (if applicable), we provide educational services to your child, and then you choose to cancel the contract before the 14 day period expires, you will be liable to pay to us our reasonable costs.  These will be the costs for the actual services provided up to the time you communicate to us your cancellation of the contract, calculated as a proportion of the termly fees.  We will return to you, after deduction of our reasonable costs, the balance of fees and any deposit(s) paid.

b) Where we have not provided educational services

If you cancel this contract within the 14 day period and we have not provided any services, we will reimburse to you in full any payment of fees and deposit(s) received from you, without undue delay, and not later than 14 days after the day on which we are informed about your decision to cancel.

We will make any reimbursement due using the same means of payment as you used for payment to us, unless we expressly agree otherwise.  You will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.

 

Reimbursement of Payments Made

If you have paid to us an amount greater than any costs we have properly incurred, we will reimburse you with the balance, within the timescale and in the manner set out in b) above.
