New Reception Starters


We have 3 classes in Reception; Mango, Watermelon and Kiwi.

The classrooms share an outdoor garden, which has a large sand pit, water area, construction station and a grassed area for our larger games. We children love our mud kitchen and dancing imaginatively on our stage.


Please click here to apply for a Reception place next September, at Great Heath Academy,

through Suffolk’s Local Authority page.
