Heatherdown School

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Heatherdown School, formally called Heatherdown Preparatory School, was an independent preparatory school for boys, near Ascot, in the English county of Berkshire. Set in 30 acres (12 ha) of grounds, it typically taught between eighty and ninety boys between the ages of seven and thirteen and closed in 1982.

The school was a leading "feeder school" for Eton College.[1]

Heatherlea

During their first year at the school, boys attended classes in the main school building but at night returned to Heatherlea, a small house set back from the London Road near the Royal Foresters Hotel. Heatherlea typically had around eight boys and two matrons.

Railway

The school had its own miniature steam railway that ran around a substantial area of the grounds. It was set up by Henry May, who ran a garage in Ascot. The railway was used by enthusiasts from outside the school, although boys were regularly recruited as passengers and spectators. The railway had one station, a halt, a tunnel and a turntable.

Notable former pupils

The school's pupils included:

According to Francis Elliot and James Hanning's biography of David Cameron, the school was renowned for its academic and sporting excellence.

Closure

The last Headmaster of the School was James V. Edwards. After closing in 1982 for financial difficulty, the buildings was bought by the Licensed Victuallers, in order to set up a junior school. The buildings were eventually demolished in 1989 at which point the site was redeveloped to house both the LVS junior school and the senior school, which moved to Ascot from its previous location in Slough.
