Classes at Heatherleys will be closed from 17 March 2020 until further notice.
We have been carefully monitoring the situation relating to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our key priority is to protect the health of our school community and so, reluctantly but unavoidably, we have decided that the school will be closed from Tuesday 17th March, when there will be no classes until further notice. We will review arrangements for the reopening of school prior to the start of the new term and inform you on the website and by newsletter when we are clear about this information.

This unprecedented situation is changing on a daily basis and we are doing all we can to protect our staff and students. Thank you for your patience at this difficult time.
