“I am encouraged by the SLT’s recent investigation into how teachers can focus on teaching and learning and reduce workload”
“Students and staff know clear expectations and these have a noticeable, positive impact on the atmosphere of the College”
“I have been incredibly lucky to work with supportive and dedicated staff throughout my career. I am constantly reminded by colleagues who visit the college about how impressed they are with the ambience of the College; the friendliness of the staff and the students.
I have been fortunate to work in a great establishment for the main part of my working life and I genuinely feel that our College and its ethos is going from great to outstanding.”
“I have always felt comfortable in asking for help when I need it and in return, I have always been supported to the highest level.
Right from when I was an NQT to now being in my fourth year of teaching, I have been given opportunities to develop my career very quickly. Opportunities such as: mentoring trainee teachers; leading CPL sessions; helping others develop their practice; achieving pay progression and planning whole school initiatives.”
“Heathfield really is a great school to work at. There is a tangible sense that all staff are ‘in it together’, working hard towards a shared goal which is essentially supporting all of our students to achieve the best they can.”
“Extremely proud of our students, staff & school….. Leadership is strong and dynamic. It’s a happy place to work. I would more than happily send my own children here!”
