About Us

About Us

Heath Mount is a leading independent day and boarding school for boys and girls between the ages of 3 and 13.  Our pupils are privileged to be educated at one of the oldest Prep Schools in the country, founded in 1796 and situated since 1934 in the Grade I listed mansion of the Woodhall Park Estate just outside Hertford. 

Our idyllic woodland setting, dynamic teaching staff, family ethos and award-winning pastoral care provide a joyful and stimulating learning environment.  We offer a broad curriculum that balances academic rigour with remarkable enrichment opportunities.  Our pupils achieve outstanding results within a nurturing and supportive framework that puts happiness and mental wellbeing at the heart of all we do. 

Our Values 

Acceptance, Respect, Integrity, Industry and Achievement

We promote a school ethos which is underpinned by these strong values. We believe  this helps our children develop a strong moral compass and a sense of self-respect and respect for others. This not only contributes to a constructive and positive learning environment but provides a framework for behaviour that will guide our children throughout the rest of their lives.

Mission Statement

Heath Mount School aims to provide a safe, friendly and nurturing environment which promotes well-being. It seeks to uncover and develop potential whilst maintaining a balance between traditional childhood experiences and preparing children for an ever-changing and evolving world. The School’s aspiration is for pupils to develop self-confidence, self-discipline, and a strong values system.
