The Curriculum

Heathside is non-academically selective, and students are supported to become confident, independent learners achieving high academic standards. Small class sizes ensure teaching is tailored so every child gets the best from each lesson.

Games & the Arts

Clubs include capoeira, chess, choir, coding, debating, drama, fencing and science. Specialist sport teachers coach a range of team sports and arrange fixtures with schools in the area. All children take part in two performances each year and music groups play regular concerts.

Pastoral Care

The wellbeing of all pupils at Heathside is of paramount importance and pupils are supported to develop healthy and happy friendships with their classmates and peers. A team of student Wellbeing Champions works with school leaders to help promote wellbeing throughout the school. If a class teacher has any concerns about any pupil’s wellbeing, they can call on the school’s Place2Be counsellor to provide support. Mindfulness is taught using specialist curriculum, Dots.

of their learning.
