The Curriculum

A Blackheath High School education inspires and equips girls to strive for personal excellence in all her endeavours: intellectual; physical; creative; cultural; social and moral. We prepare and empower girls for the future by providing an atmosphere in which academic curiosity is cultivated, confidence is built and a balanced, open-minded outlook is nurtured.

As an all-through 3-18 school, we have the luxury of being able to design a curriculum entirely tailored to these aims in every key stage.

Early Years

In Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), we know that girls flourish when they can explore, investigate and engage with the world around them. Imaginative games, role-playing and making things incite creative thinking and collaborative behaviour during this first all-important phase. Learning takes place at every moment. Forest school, assembly performances or meeting the school’s Giant African Snail, Bob; every moment matters!

Juniors

In Juniors, girls experience the highest standards of teaching from staff who are passionate about junior years education. Girls are taught by subject specialists from Year 3 onwards.

An imaginative and challenging bespoke academic curriculum is complemented by a co-curriculum that challenges, stretches and ultimately prepares girls for the world of Senior School and beyond. Junior subjects include French, Latin and Critical Thinking. Although core subjects are based upon the National Curriculum, we value our ability to provide the distinctive opportunities and exciting projects which enrich classroom teaching; the theme of our curriculum is the ‘Joy of the Challenge.’ Teaching is differentiated and focuses on engaging individuals across a range of learning styles, with superb resources and time devoted to grow the potential of every girl.

Seniors

Moving into the Senior School, the curriculum offers breadth, with an element of choice, to inspire the girls and deepen their understanding of specialist subjects. The core subjects are taught, together with the creative, physical, technological, linguistic and philosophical subjects. The Wollstonecraft Enrichment Programme and choice of French or Mandarin, Spanish or German, makes for an exciting and rigorous curriculum. For GCSE, girls have the opportunity to study Astronomy and Ancient Greek as enrichment options alongside their GCSE core and option subjects. Most girls take nine or ten GCSEs. Our extensive co-curricular opportunities support and augment the opportunities available to the girls in their academic lessons, extending their learning through performance, debate, discussion and creative activities.

Sixth Form

Our Sixth Form curriculum offers students a choice of over 25 subjects to study at A-level. Students may study three, four, or even five subjects to A-level. The majority of girls study three subjects and also undertake an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) in a subject of their choosing. As preparation for the next steps, all students also have the opportunity to follow a Theory of Knowledge course, run academic societies and attend extension classes for university admission tests.

We know that when they leave us, for university and beyond, our students are confident, composed and ready to thrive in whatever paths they choose to follow.
