Heath House Preparatory School, located at 37 Wemyss Road, Blackheath, London, SE3 0TG, was founded in 1993 by its current proprietors. This small, independent school provides an education for children between the ages of 4 and 11 from a mix of cultural backgrounds, including pupils from 37 different nationalities. The majority of students are White British with a diverse international community.

The school offers a comprehensive curriculum that is well-matched to students' needs, including pupils with additional learning requirements and those with English as an additional language. The curriculum for Foundation Stage students (ages 3-5) is satisfactory, although there is a need to improve opportunities for physical development. The school's provision for personal, social, and health education is strong, and a wide range of sporting activities contributes to the school's balanced approach.

Heath House is based in two buildings and currently has 87 students. The school emphasizes the individuality of its students and aims to create a nurturing family environment, with a staff that is committed to ensuring each child receives a well-rounded education. Annual fees range from £8,700 to £9,300 for day pupils. The school meets all Education (Independent School Standards) (England) Regulations requirements, except for giving more opportunities for free play and physical activities for children in the Foundation Stage, and providing more large apparatus for the physical development of children in the same age range.
