What the school says...

Heath Farm School was opened in 1993, and for many years it has been a positive force in re-engaging young people in their learning.

The school occupies a beautiful rural site in Charing Heath, Kent. New school buildings have been opened and their design offers an opportunity to make a conscious connection between the environment and the development of the learner.

The school is an independent, co-educational, day school approved for up to 70 pupils from 5-18 years old who for a variety of reasons have not been able to sustain mainstream education: pupils have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties and a range of additional learning difficulties including Aspergers, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Tourettes, ASD, ODD, issues which require CAMHS involvement and Attachment Disorder.
