Where your daughter will flourish
Heatherton is a forward-thinking, innovative school with a very special close family feel that is renowned in the Buckinghamshire area.

Headteacher of HeathertonVisit Our Website
Our nurturing and inspiring co-ed Nursery offers outstanding Early Years education for girls and boys from the term they turn three to the start of Reception.
The Nursery at Heatherton is a very caring environment, where every child is known individually and their own interests nurtured and developed.

NO ENTRANCE EXAMINATION FROM 2025
Entrance to Berkhamsted Girls
As we are part of the Berkhamsted Family of Schools, currently our Year 6 girls who choose to apply to Berkhamsted Girls, have the benefit of sitting the entrance assessment a week before external candidates, as well as receiving offers around 2 months ahead.
For further details on the current Year 7 entry assessments and the transfer process, please refer to our Progression Policy.
From 2025 we will not require Heatherton pupils entering Berkhamsted Girls to take any entrance exams from the 2025 Year 7 entry onwards: this affects pupils in Year 3 in September 2021, and following years.Discover Berkhamsted Girls
My daughter’s confidence and self-belief has grown brilliantly since joining and it’s so wonderful to watch her progress from strength to strength in such a kind, caring and nurturing environment.
Preparing for Senior Schools
At Heatherton, we know that choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions that you will have to make about your daughter’s future. We prepare the girls at Heatherton for a diverse range of Senior Schools, including Grammar and Independent Schools.
Heatherton pupils will stand out from others in their holistic preparation for moving up to Senior School. Our pupils are wholly supported in preparing for the transfer process for entry into any Senior School they may wish to apply for and also when preparing for Scholarships.
