Ensuring Every Child Comes Home Happy
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our parents for their warm support for Heathland School. It only seems like yesterday when we welcomed our first pupils and nursery children into our school in September 1994. Over the years, although the school has grown to include a senior school, our ethos has not changed.
We are a very family orientated school with an open door policy we see parents at any time, every day is an open day for new parents to look round, we don’t need to prepare specially for such visits. We are very aware that children who enjoy coming to school will be happy children. Children will achieve their full academic potential in our small class sizes, that allows for a great deal of individual teaching contact time in class.
We are a non-selective school but still maintain very high standard academic results, 100% A to C. This is due to our zero tolerance of bad behaviour in the classroom, highly motivated and committed teaching staff, and close communication with parents.
To appreciate what Heathland School can offer your child, please come and meet our staff and children.

Heathland School offers a wonderful opportunity for your child to study in an environment where the teacher is allowed to teach without having to cope with behavioural problems. Maximum class sizes of 16 ensure that all pupils receive individual attention, providing a positive learning environment, where even the quietest child is not overlooked. Heathland School does not tolerate bullying and fosters a strong relationship with parents. Children throughout the school benefit from the feeling of being part of a large family.
Our Senior Department caters for children from 11 to 16 years, offering a supported transition from primary to senior level and continuing the individual educational plans for each child. We offer up to 12 GCSE’s, with subjects taken early if possible and access to obtaining more practical NVQ’s if appropriate. We also incorporate many of the newer strategies and have an excellent computer suite to facilitate the latest technological advances.
As important as academic achievements are, we recognise that not all children will excel in those areas and so we regard personal development, self-confidence and tolerance as important qualities for children to be taught and so become pleasant, well-balanced people who will make a good contribution to society in the future.
