Over recent years Heathfield’s community involvement has been growing and we now have an exciting range of projects out in the community. Our Form V girls run regular sessions at a local primary school including listening to the children read, music and sport workshops and so on. Form IV and Lower Sixth girls are members of a PHAB Club run jointly with Eton, working to support a youth group for young people with and without disabilities.
We also work internationally and last year we worked with the OSCAR Foundation, supporting girls from rural India and the slums in Mumbai, to visit the UK as part of a football team. OSCAR are helping almost 3000 children to get an education, using football as a means of reaching them. Heathfield was one of the schools that raised funds for the Foundation and which hosted the tour party in October 2018.
