Welcome to our school

Thank you for your interest in Heathcote, a small family Prep school 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. As a small, friendly and happy school we are proud of the warmth, progressive approach and individualised learning every pupil receives.

Small classes and experienced, specialist teachers provide academic challenges for every pupil. Each day every member of our staff seeks to make a difference to the lives of our children. 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.

As a member of the Independent Schools Association (ISA) we take pride in the excellent standards our pupils achieve. We encourage pupils to make the most of their talents, building confidence through academic achievement and offering a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities. We endeavour to discover our children’s hidden strengths, pinpoint their passions and support their journeys to success, whether that is for 11+, Tae Kwondo championships or learning to tie their shoe laces.

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