Heathcote School is a very successful and inclusive school. We offer a firm foundation for life with small classes and individual attention, making it possible to explore and develop every child's potential.
I believe that education is about preparing and equipping young people for life, not just for school. With this philosophy as our inspiration, Heathcote School provides a stimulating environment where children enjoy learning and are encouraged and challenged to perform to the best of their ability in all areas of our extensive curriculum.
With children encouraged to set their own high standards, performance levels at Heathcote School are often outstanding in both academic and vocational areas. With no measure of success being considered too small to celebrate, our highly committed and caring staff will always convey this message to our children.
High standards are expected of the children both in and outside the school and we encourage virtues of courtesy, honesty and kindness in all that we do.
In a structured environment where children feel comfortable and happy in their surroundings, they gain a range of experiences both in and outside the classroom, learning to accept responsibility, developing self-confidence and establishing self-discipline.
Our school enjoys a lively and thriving Pre-School department based upon Montessori and proven traditional methods of teaching. Throughout the school individual special needs are given expert attention with assessments and programmes of study being constantly reviewed and revised by experienced and qualified staff.
The school achieves outstanding success in the Essex Selection Procedure (11+ and our sports achievements frequently reach national levels. Music and Drama are also encouraged and well supported with the school producing first class productions.
Visitors are welcome to come and experience the purposeful, happy and well-disciplined atmosphere that pervades our school.
