Heath Mount School is a co-educational prep school near Watton-at-Stone, Hertfordshire. It was founded as Heath Mount Academy in Hampstead and in 1934 it moved to the Woodhall Estate in rural Hertfordshire.
The school was founded as a boys' boarding school in Heath Street, Hampstead in about 1796. It moved to New End in Hampstead in the early 1860s and to the Woodhall Estate in 1934. It is now a leading independent day and boarding school for boys and girls between the ages of 3 and 13. The school won the "Songs of Praise School Choir of the Year" competition in 2012.
The house, built in the neo-classical style, was completed in 1775 and acquired, together with the surrounding Woodhall Estate, by Samuel Smith, a banker from Nottingham, in 1801. Fallow deer were introduced to the park in 1838. Following the death of Colonel Abel Henry Smith in 1930 the house became a school in 1934. It is a Grade I listed building.
