Heathcote Preparatory School & Nursery – Danbury

Heathcote – learning for tomorrow

Children starting at Heathcote School today will not reach retirement age until close to the end of this century. We cannot know what their world will look like or what skills and learning will best suit them.

Our challenge is to normalise what we often think of as genius. Most people’s capacity is drastically underestimated: they might not even know their own capabilities. At Heathcote, we aim to educate the whole person, drawing out their unrecognised or untapped abilities. We believe it is essential to encourage our pupils to find and nurture their unique talents.

We do not wish to marginalise with a narrow view of intelligence, ability or worth.

We recognise that you cannot be creative without error nor productive without failure. We encourage our pupils to investigate beyond the simple recognition of the difference between a correct or incorrect answer and to learn how to problem solve through creative thinking and experimentation and, by so doing, develop the capacity for innovation within their learning.

We are very proud of our School and Nursery and welcome children from 2 years of age.

Our Early Years was described as ‘OUTSTANDING’ by Ofsted and ‘Excellent’ by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI). Our main school received many areas of ‘Excellent’. We are so proud of our children.
