Proud To Be Part of the GDST

GDST LogoBlackheath High School is a proud member of the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST). We were the first school purpose-built by the Trust in 1880 and have long benefited from the support and strength of the GDST network.

No school network is as powerful, large or effective as the GDST. We harness the power of 70,000 alumnae, 20,000 students and 3,700 staff to offer students unparalleled opportunities. In her time at school, a girl may compete in a GDST sport rally, benefit from a GDST music scholarship, participate in a GDST national debate competition or benefit from career mentoring from an alumna leading in her field. Read about the host of GDST opportunities afforded to our Sixth Form and alumnae as they progress on to the next stage of their educational journeys and careers.
