Welcome to our school

Thank you for your interest in Heathcote, a Prep school and nursery in the heart of Essex, for boys and girls aged 2-11. I am delighted that you are considering our school.

Heathcote is an exceptionally warm and friendly place to learn where excellence is at the heart of all we do.  Working as a team we foster a love of lifelong learning whilst at the same time encouraging all our community to be curious, appreciative and respectful towards the world around them. We are proud of the progressive approach and individualised learning every pupil receives. Small classes and experienced, specialist teachers provide academic challenges for every pupil.

Our mission is to ensure that every pupil recognises their own self-worth and through their school journey they build character, confidence and compassion as well as a solid academic foundation. Determination, resilience and endurance are fundamental to our ethos.

I would be delighted to meet you and show you around our wonderful school. Please contact us to book a tour. In the meantime I hope you find this website helpful.
