About Heath Mount School

Heath Mount is a thriving independent, co-educational pre-prep and prep school for children aged 3-13. It is one of the oldest prep schools in the country. We promote an ethos underpinned by strong values. These are acceptance, respect, integrity, industry and achievement. A child’s school life will shape their entire life. Whilst academic achievement and exam success are important, it is equally vital that the school nourishes, prepares, stimulates, supports and channels them physically, emotionally, socially and mentally and provides them with drive and resilience for the years ahead.

A dedicated and purpose-built Nursery and Pre-Prep building is situated in woods a short walk from the main house. The fabulous facilities are inspiring – excellent sports facilities include a sports hall, covered swimming pool, an all-weather pitch and a newly opened performing arts centre adjacent to a new building which is home for Years 3 and 4. The School has an excellent academic record, as well as outstanding art and sport and some of the finest school music in the country. The number of scholarships awarded to Year 8 pupils by senior schools is extraordinary.


Fees range from £2,300 per term in Nursery to £5,935 per term (Day) in Years 7 &8. (2018/19 academic year).
