Supporting transition

Transition into Senior School for Year 7 students

Within the first six weeks of their new school life, our Year 7 girls are very happy, busy and stimulated by a range of innovative experiences and events specially designed to smooth transition. These events fuse together both academic and personal experiences for all girls in Year 7 to foster teamwork and friendship.

Summer School

We begin this exciting time with our fantastic Summer School Programme in the last week of August. Activities include: cake making in our fantastic cooking suite; an art and textiles project; sports activities; a picnic in Greenwich Park and a cinema experience in our fabulous theatre. This ensures that your daughter feels happy and relaxed when starting at the school in September. It is also a great opportunity for the girls from our Junior School to become friends with girls joining from other schools.

Pastoral Team event

The Year 7 Pastoral team of three Form Tutors led by the Head of Year 7, also plan and create a special Induction Afternoon followed by a further full day of induction activities to enable the girls to familiarise themselves with the school buildings and, most importantly, to get to know their Form Tutor and fellow classmates. This afternoon makes the girls feel comfortable and familiar with their new surroundings and with the expectations of secondary school life. 

PGL Windmill Hill Residential

Then, in mid-September, all of Year 7 take part in a PGL residential weekend. Girls conquer any fears and try out a range of multi-sports activities run by fully qualified instructors that help them to overcome any self-consciousness and promote a sense of teamwork, and the determination to achieve. Girls also enjoy the social evening activities and build friendships that are consolidated through these shared team experiences. 

Tea Party Celebration

In October, the girls host their own Tea Party Celebration event for their parents. Our Year 7 students perform and celebrate their achievements within their first half term at Blackheath High. 

Other events

Our Head of Year 7 takes students to the Unicorn Theatre at Christmas, there is a Cinema Evening in late March and a trip to Broadstairs in July, providing a delightful end to the girls first year at Senior School.

I am really enjoying my time at BHS. I feel really safe here and everyone is kind.
 I am settling in quickly as the teachers are all so nice and I have made lots of new friends. I’m loving it here! I am really looking
forward to many more years to come.
- Lois, Year 7

 

The thing I like most about Seniors is the diversity of the clubs and societies we can join.  I have signed up for Netball Club, Amnesty Society and Creative Writing Club. I also enjoy going to the Library a couple of times a week to do some homework at lunchtime. All of the teachers are friendly and supportive which has made settling in very easy.
