Headmaster's Welcome

Welcome to Heath Mount, our outstanding co-educational Prep school set in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside.  Childhoods are cherished here and children are nurtured as we give them the opportunities to explore their talents and deepen their learning.  It is my privilege to lead a dedicated team of teachers who are passionate about opening up new avenues of learning for every child whilst giving them the space and time to imagine, create and play.

Happy children learn best and we are proud of our award-winning pastoral care which underpins our commitment to creative and academic excellence.  Children are valued as individuals and we seek to develop the talents of every child whilst preparing them for the exciting and dynamic challenges that lie ahead.  We foster a love of learning whilst encouraging skills of initiative, determination and independence that will last a lifetime.  Our pupils look outwards from a secure and happy start.

I hope you enjoy exploring Heath Mount on our website and getting a feel for the unique education and incredible enrichment opportunities we can provide. Heath Mount is full of fun and energy and to truly appreciate what makes our school so special we encourage you to visit us and meet the extraordinary community of people who work, learn and play here.
