60 seconds with Ms H Morrell, Director of Sport

From fostering as many sporting opportunities as possible to cultivating our girls' love of the subject, our Director of Sport tells us all. 

Tell us about yourself.

I have worked at Blackheath High School for three years and I am the Director of Sport as well as a Year 7 Form Tutor. I run the PE department which involves developing sport at the school, fostering as many opportunities as possible and cultivating our girls’ love of sport.

Tell us about your career path. 

I started teaching in 2006 as a PE teacher at Christ’s Hospital School in West Sussex where I then became Head of Athletics. In 2010, I become Head of Girls’ Games at Canford School in Dorset and in 2015, I relocated to London to take on the role of Director of Sport at Blackheath High School. Both of my previous schools were boarding schools so it is refreshing to be at a day school. 

How does your previous experience benefit the school?

I have been teaching for 11 years now, which brings a wealth of experience. At my previous schools, I had a lot to do with County Athletics and County Netball, and coached students who played at an extremely high level.  

What do you like most about your job? 

The students, my department and the variety of day-to-day life at Blackheath High School.

What makes working here at Blackheath High School so rewarding and enjoyable? 

I honestly think that our students are fantastic. I enjoy getting to know them and seeing them develop. Blackheath High School cultivates girls who are true to themselves. We embrace all of their different personalities and being an individual here is celebrated. I also love taking the students on trips and fixtures, giving them the opportunity to participate in sport and have an adventure through my subject.

What has been your biggest achievement at Blackheath High School? 
Increasing participation in sport, the development of our Sixth Form sports programme and our summer camp. We produce resilient, competitive girls and I am really proud of them. 

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? 
I am very active (as you would expect!). I play hockey and netball, and last year, I ran the London Marathon for the first time.

Tell me something surprising about yourself. 
I have met the Queen!
