Heathfield School contributes to its local community in a number of different ways and many positive relationships have been established over the years.
The school has a strong link with St Saviour’s Priory in Haggerston dating back to the school’s founder Eleanor Wyatt. Our harvest festival collection is donated to the Priory which is then used to supply those less fortunate than ourselves with a hearty meal.
The girls put on performance for local nursing homes and recently have sung to residents at St David’s House at Ascot Priory and Sandridge House.
Our Duke of Edinburgh girls go to Portesbury School in Camberley, which is a school for children with learning difficulties. They help with practical activities at lunchtime including art, computing and games. The girls also volunteer in Lily Hill Park, undertaking projects that help to keep the park inviting for all its visitors.
Recently Heathfield established a relationship with local charity Thames Hospice Care where we planted two tulip gardens to help the hospice mark its 25th anniversary and the school intends to continue developing a partnership with the charity.
Our sports facilities are used on a regular basis by swimming clubs and a dance school. The lacrosse pitches are used by national teams and also to host tournaments. The local churches use the sports grounds for Croquet.
