The period from nursery school and pre-prep school is critical in building strong foundations for future learning. At Heath Mount, we encourage a love of learning and the art of creative thinking, supported by strong moral values.
Our prep school nurtures children aged from 7 years old, challenging them to reach their full potential academically, creatively, musically, artistically and on the sports field, as well as encouraging all-important leadership qualities.
We offer many opportunities and experiences to our senior school pupils as they journey through Years 7 and 8, preparing them for some of the most prestigious schools in the country aged 13+, where many gain scholarships.
Whether the family home is based outside or within Hertfordshire, private flexi-boarding enables children to learn to work as part of a team, build confidence, independence and personal responsibility, all the while enjoying the boarding school camaraderie.
Every year Heath Mount children are prepared for, and go on to, the senior school of their choice, including Eton and Harrow. In the academic year 2017-18, we gained 42 scholarships to senior schools.
