Welcome from our Head

I first entered the teaching profession because I loved the vitality, curiosity and passion of young people and could think of no better vocation than helping and influencing them to discover and achieve their dreams. Twenty years later as a Head, I feel exactly the same and have the privilege of leading a team of talented and inspirational teachers who share that same vision at Blackheath High supported by the pioneering Girls' Day School Trust (GDST).

At Blackheath, everything we do is based on the simple belief that all girls will achieve and excel given the right support and inspiration for her. We know that girls flourish personally and academically when they are inspired by gifted teachers and supported by a community that knows and appreciates them as individuals. Our size means we know all our girls extremely well, and that we can build meaningful lifelong relationships with all our girls and their families.

We are proud of our girls’ considerable academic and co-curricular achievements, all the more so because they are achieved in an atmosphere that is compassionate and is underpinned by genuine breadth and balance in the curriculum.

At Blackheath, our girls have personality. We celebrate character. We want the girls to be comfortable in their own skin and know that there are no stereotypes at Blackheath High. This fosters an open-minded and forward-thinking atmosphere in which girls learn the social skills and attitudes of mind that will serve them well when they leave us. A quick glance at our alumnae pages gives a sense of the courage, creativity and diversity of our girls; we are very proud of our alumnae!

Energy, curiosity and vivacity characterise Blackheath High students; we hope you can experience a small flavour of this spirit from our website. There is no better way to understand us, than to come and visit in person, so do please arrange a personal visit or attend one of our forthcoming open events. I look forward to meeting you!

Warm regards,
