Dear Parent/Carer


I am writing to extend a warm welcome for you to attend our College Open Evening on Thursday 26 September 2019 from 5:30pm – 8:00pm. We are keen for you to experience the environment, learn more about the outstanding opportunities for students and collect a prospectus. We would be delighted to introduce you to our dedicated staff and show you our impressive learning environment and resources.

Heathfield Community College is a high performing secondary school and sixth form, we provide a welcoming and inspirational community where young people excel. Our results at GCSE and A2 consistently place us amongst the best in the county with attainment at GCSE significantly above national standards. We believe these outcomes are the direct result of our strong community ethos and commitment to excellence.

We aim to ensure you and your child will be able to see all areas of the College in action. You will be encouraged to participate in a host of interesting learning activities across the curriculum. It will also provide the opportunity to ask those really important questions about issues such as pastoral care, secondary curriculum and learning, extra-curricular clubs and activities, Special Needs provision or school transport.

Dialogue with existing students will provide an insight into what it truly feels like to be a student at the College. We want you and your child to gain a full picture of the College experience of success and personal fulfilment. The College will be open from 5.30pm to 8.00pm and there will be presentations, including an address from the Headteacher, in the Main Hall at 5:45pm and 6:45pm.

To enable you to find out more about the College in the time available I would recommend that you either:

• Attend the presentation at 5:45pm followed by a tour of the College or

• Take a tour of the College followed by the presentation at 6:45pm

I very much hope you and your child are able to attend the Open Evening and I look forward to welcoming you to Heathfield Community College on Thursday 26 September.

If you require any special access arrangements for the evening or have any queries relating to this event or questions about the College please do not hesitate to contact us on 01435 866066 Ext 1200 or e mail

Yours sincerely

To help ease congestion on the surrounding roads we will run a Park and Ride minibus shuttle service to and from the College from two pick up points.

The first pick up will be from Watsons Auctioneers Car Park which is about 1 mile from the College. Please see below the map for the location of this service:


The second pick up point will provide transport from Heathfield for those parents who wish to park in the town or for those who live locally. The minibuses will collect from the Council Car Park (Sainsbury’s) near to the recycling area. Please see the highlighted pick up point below:


All shuttle services to the College will start at 5:00pm and continue regularly throughout the evening. The last pick up from the Watson’s car park and Heathfield will be 7:15pm, however, the minibuses will continue a return service from the College to Watson’s car park and Heathfield until 8:00pm.

One-Way System Weather permitting, we will open our field for parking but if you do intend to drive to the College, please ensure that you use our one-way system to allow the traffic to flow. Please see the map below:
