We chose Heathcote, partly because of the small class sizes, but we also like the friendly, warm and caring nature of the school. I love that all the children are encouraged to have a go at everything – there is no favouritism or picking the same children for everything – every child is treated as special and as an individual. 

Year 3 Parent

“Having been bringing our children to Heathcote for the last 15 years I cannot fault it, both academically and also the emotional support that the staff have given our family. “

Year 6 Parent

“Heathcote is so friendly and welcoming. The Nursery staff have gone above and beyond helping our little girl to settle in. We know she is very well cared for.”

Nursery Parent

“Our children look forward to school and nursery every day. The small class sizes mean they get one to one attention every day and this reflects the strength of their learning. All of the children are friendly, polite and caring, an ethic which is clear to see throughout the school. As parents we feel involved and well-communicated to. We are very glad we chose Heathcote School to give our children the best possible start with their education.”

Nursery and Year 2 Parent

“Friendly and inclusive, Heathcote is and has been very beneficial to our twins. Both of them always look forward to going to school.”
