We pride ourselves on our reputation for being a happy, lively school, where both staff and students are given every opportunity, with relevant support, to thrive.

We love diversity and seek to work with people from all walks of life and backgrounds.

More importantly, we constantly work to improve the culture of our forward-thinking school, ensuring that everyone working and studying is valued and consistently nurtured, both educationally and emotionally.

We are fortunate enough to be nestled in the beautiful Somerset countryside, yet within easy reach of the M5 and the historic market town of Taunton. Taunton itself offers a good range of facilities, particularly for sports enthusiasts. The town has a railway station that offers superb links to London Paddington and beyond.

We look forward to meeting you, and hope that you experience the sense of passion and enthusiasm that radiates through Heathfield Community School.
