Welcome to Summer at Heathfield ” Heathfield Summer School

International Summer School and Summer Camp for Girls

Contact Us

2017 – July 15th to August 12th

Heathfield School was founded in 1899 to offer girls a first-class education and is one of the few remaining all-girl boarding schools in England. It combines traditional values with up-to-date teaching and facilities – and a very friendly welcome.

At Heathfield we have been running our own summer courses for 40 years. We welcome girls from overseas on our British Council Accredited English Language Summer School, the only all girls English course in the UK. International students are joined by girls from the local area and across Britain on our Activities Summer Camp. As sports and activities are often shared, many friendships across the world are formed.

The safety, welfare and well-being of your daughter are our prime concern at all times. We are a small course offering personal care and Heathfield has an exceptionally high staff-student ratio of 1:6; a nurse is on duty at all times.

What also makes Heathfield very special is the sense of continuity and the family atmosphere. The Directors and a lot of the staff have worked together for years and many girls return summer after summer. Some go on to become Student Assistants and Helpers and they welcome all our new girls each summer.

Location and Setting

Heathfield School is situated in lovely countryside just outside the famous village of Ascot in 35 acres of beautiful, private, tree-lined grounds. Ascot is only 25 miles west of London and is very convenient for the city and for Heathrow airport. We are also close to Windsor, Oxford and Reading.

The school’s extensive facilities include: a new performing arts centre; a sports hall with squash, badminton and basketball courts and a dance studio; a large, heated indoor swimming pool; tennis courts; sports fields; drama and art studios; cookery suite; a bright, well-equipped classroom block; spacious library; single and shared bedrooms and a wood-panelled dining-room.
