Heathfield School is the only small boarding school for girls in the United Kingdom; boarding is an integral part of the school’s way of life and community. Girls board in their year groups in dormitories from Forms I to III, and in Forms IV-LVI the girls have their own rooms. Upper Sixth girls move into the Sixth Form Bungalow where they have the opportunity to prepare for independent living and university life.
Girls have a strong support network at Heathfield. Everyone is part of our House system and girls are put into one of four Houses where they remain throughout their time at Heathfield. The Heads of House are responsible for the girls’ welfare and are the main point of contact for parents. Girls also have an allocated Housemistress in the boarding area who is on duty before and after the school day and on weekends, and who can be also contacted by parents.
Boarding at Heathfield allows girls to really be part of an environment where they make friends for life and gives them the opportunity to experience so much each day alongside their academic studies.
