Music is a particular strength at Heathfield and the opportunities for experienced and novice musicians and singers are extensive.

We have a Senior Choir for Form III upwards, a Junior Choir for Forms I and II, an Orchestra, a Woodwind Ensemble, a Brass Ensemble, an A Cappella Group and a Band. ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) exams and Trinity College London music exams are offered and girls are supported in preparing for and taking these exams.

We also provide an impressive range of lessons taught by visiting peripatetic teachers. These include the piano, guitar, strings, woodwind, brass, percussion and the harp; girls are encouraged to take music examinations and involve themselves with the different orchestras and musical groups on offer.

The Choir and Classics departments enjoy a biennial European tour.
