Message from the Head Girl Team

TallulahThis year has gone by so quickly and I cannot believe it; I still remember walking into Year 12 and being daunted by starting my A-level studies. I’ve been amazed by the speed at which events have flown by; from the annual House Music competition, through to the Blackheath High Fashion Show. As a Sixth Form student, I have been very much involved in organising both of these events and I have found being ‘in charge’ a great way to learn several career-type skills. I was pleased and also surprised to still be involved in the lower school events, including the school play. This was because my first thought about Sixth Form was that, once you start studying for your A-levels, you ‘have no life’ and spend all day in the Sixth Form Centre with an endless supply of toast and tea! Although the luxury of carbs and PG Tips is appealing, I found that I also had lots of opportunity to engage in the whole life of the school, which has been very rewarding.  

The transition from studying GCSEs to studying A-levels is quite a challenge, but one of the reasons why this is less stressful at Blackheath High, is because of the additional support that we get here. There have been occasions where I have felt slightly overwhelmed by the range in the curriculum, but with the knowledge and understanding that the teachers have, I was able to make excellent progress. You can always find someone to give you advice or a hug! Whether your issue is to do with maths or EPQ, the girls are so understanding, particularly those in Year 13, as they have already been through it!  

Becoming a Sixth Former meant taking charge of my studies and learning to prioritise certain projects over others.  I did not achieve this alone; I had the help of our Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Elliott and Assistant Head of Sixth Form, Miss Williams. I could go to them with any problems I experienced and they would always have space on their couch for a catch-up session. 

One of the most valuable things about Sixth Form lessons is that the classes are small and the discussions held in class feel more like a real exploration of concepts. As the school year progressed and the A-level work load increased, I began to have a growing appreciation for the teachers of my subjects. They would sacrifice a lot of their valuable time to have one-on-one sessions with me - explaining theories again or giving me extra support. This was very important because it meant that, as a student, I was getting the attention that I needed if I was finding an area in a topic difficult. It also helped to improve my confidence in the specific subject.

Although this year has passed quickly, I am looking forward to next year and fully embracing my role as Head Girl; doing the best I can to organise events with my team, as well as representing the school. This will be very exciting as we will have the opportunity to help arrange our favourite events at Blackheath High such as the House Quiz competition and Sports Day. I am looking forward to growing as an individual in my studies and also accomplishing tasks that I’d never have thought possible.

Tallulah Mbangweta, Head Girl
