A warm welcome to Heathlands Primary Academy and Preschool.
Heathlands is a one form entry primary academy located in West Howe close to the Children's Centre, West Howe Library, Henry Brown Youth Centre, Fernheath Play and the local shops. We have around 200 pupils from Reception age 4 through to year 6 age 11. We are also fortunate to have our wonderful preschool for 3 and 4 year olds on site as part of our Early Years base.
We have wonderful outside facilities - 2 playgrounds, our woodland area and a large playing field to support our learning. We are part of the Coastal Learning Partnership.
At Heathlands we believe that with effective teaching and learning and excellent partnership with parents all children can be successful. Children can begin their journey at Heathlands in the school's preschool and remain at the school until they leave, ready to begin their secondary education, at the end of Year 6.
Our three key values underpin the work that is done at Heathlands, these being: Respect, Excellence and Integrity. Through these values, and the school's curriculum, pupils are well prepared for their next stage of education.
