Blackheath High School Students STEAM Ahead with Best Ever Results

Blackheath High School GDST has achieved its best ever GCSE results. 

With GCSEs now graded on a scale of one to nine, the school’s Year 11 students achieved 99% 9-4 (A*-C), with 67% 9-7(A*-A) and 41% 9-8 (A*). 

This represents a 14% increase in the number of 8/9 (A*) grades over the past 5 years.

The school was especially pleased with the phenomenal results achieved in both Art and Science, with 90% 7-9 (A-A*) and 81% 7-9 (A-A*) in the subjects.

This comes after our recent push to focus not just on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) subjects, but STEAM (A for Arts) to ensure students full creative potential is achieved.  

The results provide further evidence of how students have been able to take full advantage of our recent fantastic school redevelopment which brought with it specialist state-of-the-art Science laboratories and teaching studios for Art, Design & Technology and Music; as well as expansive gallery and exhibition spaces.

Head of Blackheath High School, Mrs Carol Chandler-Thompson said: “At Blackheath High School we strive to put each of our girls in the very best position to maximise their potential in both an academic and creative sense. 

“However, it is still up to the girls themselves to work hard and take full advantage of the resources around them. 

“That’s what make today’s results - where we have seen girls excel across such a wide range of subject areas - so thoroughly pleasing. It’s been fantastic to see their hard work, dedication and talent recognised and rewarded today.”

It’s been fantastic to see their hard work, dedication and talent recognised and rewarded today.

- Mrs Chandler-Thompson

Among the delighted students at the school today was Mia from New Cross who had her GCSE Artwork exhibited at the Royal AcademMia Dysony of Arts earlier this summer 

From over 6,000 works submitted, Mia’s piece ‘Babcia’ which is the Polish word for ‘Grandmother’, was chosen for display at the RA’s inaugural Young Artists' Summer Show. 

After achieving grades 9 and 8 (A*/A*) in Sciences and A*/A* in Science and Art, Mia will be continuing at Blackheath High to study A Level Textiles and Biology, Psychology and EPQ. 

She said: “It was so surreal to see my artwork in the Royal Academy and so surreal to see my results here today”

She thanked her teachers: “Mrs Beecham for always being so caring, Dr Mustafa her science teacher for continually pushing me, my French teacher Ms Milne for bringing France into the class room, and Ms Elliot, our Queen of Biology, for being such a great role model.”

Miriam will be going onto study French, Biology, Chemistry and Maths at Blackheath High Sixth Form after completing her summer work experience in the lab of the Gurdon Institute at Cambridge University, where she conducted research into how to control stem cells in the brain to help treat dementia and diabetes.

Dilmi will be studying Biology, Chemistry and Maths in Sixth Form.
