Heathside School

– A message from the Head

“I’m delighted to welcome you to view a glimpse of Heathside on this page. Anyone who visits Heathside will tell you it is a special place.

Our independent, happy, friendly, and academic school is known among the local community for putting children at the heart of everything we do. The school is set in historic buildings in the heart of Hampstead, a few minutes’ walk from Hampstead Heath, where the children play at lunchtimes….”

Heathside maintains an informal atmosphere while fostering a high level of individual responsibility and self-motivation. We encourage the development of the whole person and, as a result, Heathside is a relaxed and happy place and academic standards are high.

Heathside has been providing child-centred education for more than 25 years. We joined the Dukes family in 2019, and are delighted to gain from the added support and to find ourselves amongst a wider team of fellow schools. I’m so excited for the future of Heathside – please do take a look at our website or, even better, come visit us!”

About
Heathside School

Founded more than 25 years ago, Heathside School has built a reputation as an environment where children spend their time happy and fulfilled.

 

Full advantage has always been taken of the local surroundings, with ‘Heath’ being a timetabled part of the curriculum.

 

The school is home to dedicated teachers who focus on keeping childhood special, while delivering a rich academic curriculum and preparing children to go on to leading London senior schools. Many children also choose to stay at Heathside School and attend the senior school up to Year 9.

Our Ethos

The vision at Heathside is to empower students to acquire, demonstrate, articulate and value knowledge and skills that will support them, as independent lifelong learners, to make a positive difference to the world they will inherit. The values of the school are respect, tolerance, inclusion and personal excellence.

 

Heathside School’s aims are:

 

  • Outstanding outcomes for children and young people.
  • Confident, responsible, independent and resilient young citizens.
  • A vigilant culture of safety and wellbeing – to ensure that children are happy and thrive.
  • To develop a Centre of Excellence for outstanding teaching.

I saw my son beam with confidence and excitement. You cannot imagine how being at Heathside made him feel. His face was a picture and one I will never forget.
