We believe pupils learn, play and interact when their happiness is placed at the foremost of all that we do. Fostering happiness involves embracing all aspects of a child’s development, listening to their concerns and responding to needs as appropriate. What makes Heathfield Knoll unique is the focus on relationships and the time invested in understanding the needs of each individual.

Our Learning Skills department leads our provision for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). Our SENCo/Head of Learning Support leads an experienced and well-trained department supporting children in the Lower, Middle and Upper Schools.
The Learning Support Department work closely with class and subject teachers to ensure that all children’s needs are understood and met during their time at Heathfield Knoll School. All teaching and support staff receive regular training in Autism, Dyslexia and other neurodiversities, to make sure that every individual is supported and challenged, taking into account their additional needs. Small class sizes and in-class support benefits all of our pupils, not just those with additional needs.
Pupils at Heathfield Knoll school enjoy making use of the dedicated Support Base which is equipped with assistive technology, multi-sensory resources, a nurture space and SEN staff to support our pupils through 1:1 lessons, small group intervention or informal drop-in support sessions.
Working in partnership with parents is integral, therefore parents of each child on the SEN register are given regular opportunities to meet with the SENCo and other members of the Learning Support Department. Pupil voice is also central and children are encouraged to share how they feel about their learning experiences.
Where appropriate, a bespoke plan of support is established and/or a reduced timetable is implemented. Exam access arrangements are organised to ensure that pupils are supported throughout their Upper School Years in preparation for their external examinations.
The school works closely with a number of outside agencies such as an Educational Psychologist, Autism Outreach, CAMHS, Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy to gain appropriate help according to the need of the individual pupil.
Heathfield Knoll School grants a number of scholarships each
year, which recognise outstanding academic achievements, artistic ability, music and performing arts talents and sporting potential. These select number of pupils will receive enhanced access and provision to our curriculum.
Pupils who are awarded a scholarship at HKS will also receive up to 50% remission of school fees and in addition, may also be eligible for gratis additional tuition in their chosen subject(s).
As well as offering an exceptional scholarship programme at
Heathfield Knoll School, we also offer a number of bursaries to enable children to benefit from a high-quality education, with extra curriculum activities, despite your financial circumstances.
