I am incredibly proud to be leading the school through a period of change and rapid improvement as we seek to make Heathfield a place of academic excellence, where children can progress and thrive. We are developing a culture of high expectations and mutual respect, where students and staff can be successful in our roles and become the best possible version of ourselves.
Heathfield has long been proud of its strong connections with the local community; our parents and our partners at the Tacchi-Morris Art Centre are highly engaged in school life. It is incredibly important to us that our students develop a strong sense of belonging and confidence in their own ability to achieve well and to go on to serve their community.
Heathfield is the proud home of The Cedar Centre, a specialist resource base for learners with autism, and of the SPACE, the Somerset Performing Arts Centre of Excellence, which comprises our VI form offer.
Later this year, Heathfield will join the Cabot Learning Federation, a West Country trust with a strong track record of delivering school improvement. The CLF shares Heathfield’s ambitions of eradicating disadvantage to provide a first-class education for all its pupils.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
