Heathfield School closed to all pupils in March, in response to the global Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and in line with the UK government advice. Thankfully, the UK is now emerging from the crisis and schools in England began to reopen from 1 June, albeit under stringent social distancing requirements.
All schools are now allowed to re-open in the UK, provided they can adhere to stringent guidelines.
The UK Government clarified that the return to schools in September was to be at the normal beginning of term date, for all pupils, in all year groups.
Boarding has re-opened
We welcomed Boarders back to Heathfield in September, and the safety of the children remains our paramount concern. We continue to implement all government advised protective measures against COVID-19, and meet any and every stringent hygiene and social distancing requirement.

The BSA Charter
We are proud to have committed to adhering to the Boarding Schools’ Association’s (BSA) COVID-Safe Charter. Established in May 2020, the Charter aims to ensure the safety of all pupils and staff as schools begin to re-open across the UK, following closures due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
