Blaaaackheath High School renames to celebrate students' straight A A-Level Results

Our A-level students were thrilled today to collect their exam results across a remarkably diverse range of subjects, and to celebrate students’ straight A results, Head teacher, Mrs Chandler-Thompson, is changing the name of the school to Blaaaackheath High School for one day only.

Head Teacher, Mrs Chandler-Thompson “We are so proud of every single one of our girls and their achievements. It is fantastic to have such great results and wonderful to see our girls, many of whom joined us aged 3 or aged 11, transform into outstanding young women who I have no doubt will go on to smash many glass ceilings. It is not just their academic achievements but also their contribution to school life through participation in sports teams, art, drama, clubs and societies I’d like to thank them for. To celebrate the girls’ achievements, we thought it would be fun to change our school name for the day to Blaaaackheath High School!”

Student Rei-Lin Tran, who joined Blackheath High School aged 9, gained straight As in Chemistry (A*), Maths (A), Physics (A), Chinese AS (A) & French AS (A) and is delighted to have a place at Imperial College London to read Materials Science and Engineering. Rei-Lin said “I am so excited. I’ve really benefitted from the welcoming teachers and their 1:1 support, especially at A-Level.”

Jessamy Riley was elated to be awarded straight As in Biology (A), Chemistry (A*) Maths (A) and EPQ (A*) and will study Chemistry with Industrial Experience at The University of Liverpool.  In line with the school’s focus on breadth and subject passion, Jessamy is one of many Blackheath High Students who is able to combine her passions for both STEM and Arts subjects.  While studying sciences and maths she wrote an impressive Alternative Reality Fantasy Novel for her EPQ, developing her passion for creative writing.

Mrs Kate Elliot, Head of Sixth Form says “It is wonderful here in the Sixth Form that we have the time and capacity as teachers to get to know the students as individuals and to be able to nurture diverse talents and passions to help each girl grow and guide them towards their future career.”

Blackheath High School continues its trade-mark success in the arts, with an impressive number of students going on to study Art, Music, Film, TV & Fashion.  Serafina Kruegel-Hanna, who joined the school when she was aged 10, will take up a place at Central Saint Martins after receiving triple As in Art (A), Textiles (A) and Religious Studies (A).  On opening her results, Serafina said: I’m feeling a whole bunch of emotions, I’m excited, I’m thrilled and just so looking forward to the future.”

It was not just STEM and Arts subjects that saw real success, there were straight As across the board in modern languages - Spanish & German - and Business studies. 95% of students received A or A* in their Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

100% of our Y13 students passed their A Level examinations with 70% attaining grades A*, A or B and 30% attaining grade A*/A.

Our no gender stereotypes approach to education has influenced the various career paths our students aspire to with all being accepted onto a huge array of degree courses including Law, Electronic Engineering, Architecture, Biological Sciences, Psychology, Accounting, English, Politics, Computer Science, Chemistry for Drug Discovery at notable universities including Bristol, York, Goldsmiths, Exeter, and Kings College London.
