The college draws its students from a large geographical area including the villages of Punnetts Town, Three Cups and all of the surrounding villages as well as Cross-in-Hand, Horam, Mayfield and Burwash. There are currently over 1200 students on roll with approximately 250 in the 6th Form. The college works very closely with its family of primary feeder schools (Punnetts town, Broad Oak, Burwash, Cross in Hand, Dallington, Five Ashes, Old Heathfield, Herstmonceux, Mayfield, Maynards Green and Parkside.
Founded in 1950, the school was initially envisioned to include an average of 800 students, but the college now finds itself reaching an average enrollment of 1200 students between the ages of 11–18 years old. In 2003 Heathfield Community College was awarded Specialist status in the Visual and Performing Arts. This provided funding for the college to be used for The Arts.
When the college was built it was designed so that in the event of a nuclear war it could easily be turned into a hospital at short notice.
Heathfield Community College is separated into two sections, Secondary School and Sixth Form college.
