We are immensely proud of the resilience, tenacity and integrity shown by our A level students and staff amid the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. Their hard work resulted in 73% of grades being awarded at A* to B, of which over 34% are A*/A, and nearly 95% A* to C – surpassing last year’s performance. As these young women embark on the next chapter of their lives, they take with them an education that extends far beyond their academic grades – they are equipped with self-belief, a sense of individuality, and a desire to make the world a better place.

From science, to languages, psychology, business and fashion design, Heathfield students have had the opportunity to study a vast array of A level subjects, reflecting Heathfield’s commitment to discerning and developing every girl’s unique talents to enable her to excel.

Standout performances include those by Lottie, who achieved three A*s and is heading to the University of Newcastle to study International Relations; Lottie was also awarded the Flip Gregory prize for ‘courage in adversity’, together with Rosie who is going to Bath Spa to study criminology; the school’s previous Head Girl team of Head Girl Sophia and Deputies Harriet and Boots gained 4A*, 3As and 2Bs between them.

An impressive number of students are destined for leading Russell Group universities such as Exeter, Durham, Newcastle, Edinburgh and UCL, and other leading universities to study a broad range of subjects including veterinary nursing, costume design, film and television, education, and business marketing.

Several Heathfield girls are heading to international institutions to continue their studies – Masha is going to Northeastern University in the USA to study Engineering, while Scarlett won a scholarship to study Fashion Design at Parsons Paris.
