Excellence in education since 1620.

Heathfield Knoll School and First Steps Day Nursery

Heathfield Knoll School and First Steps Day Nursery caters for children from three months to 16 years old.

Their journey starts at First Steps with a highly-qualified and experienced Day Nursery team.

Children are well cared for and staff encourage them to be active learners, independent thinkers and promote their curiosity.

A spokesman for the school said: “Our Preschool offers the very best transition into Reception Class.

“Pupils develop and learn in a dedicated environment suitable to the next stage of their learning. 

They will start to broaden experiences and horizons by trying new things; we believe that
exploration is the best way to learn."

In HKS Lower School pupils continue a creative, yet personalised, approach to education allowing each individual to flourish across the curriculum and excel in the areas they are most passionate about.
The Middle School at HKS builds on the success of the Lower School, and helps pupils make a smooth transition into the Upper School.

Pupils continue to benefit from small class sizes, catering for the full range of abilities. 

As they mature, pupils are given greater independence and responsibility around school. 

In HKS Upper School the aim is to ensure that all pupils have a fulfilling experience and leave as balanced and confident individuals thoroughly equipped for what lies ahead.

The spokesman added: “We offer a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, from cookery to photography from archery to cricket from computer coding to 3D art we cater to pupils’ individual interests.

“We invite you to visit HKS to see pupil happiness and positive relationships first hand. You will not be disappointed.”
