Bespoke academic enrichment

The Wollstonecraft Enrichment Programme is unique to Blackheath High School. It broadens our students' educational experience and inspires them in the pursuit of their intellectual passions.

Named after Mary Wollstonecraft, the writer, philosopher and advocate of women's rights, this innovative programme supports learning and encourages exploration of new horizons.

Senior School

The Wollstonecraft Enrichment Programme starts in Senior School, enriching the girls' secondary school education. This course encourages deeper questioning and provides an opportunity to formulate rational arguments about abstract and intellectually stimulating topics. The course also complements the PSHE programme in encouraging students to consider different viewpoints and cultural perspectives, to reflect upon their own subjective experiences and their own place in society. They express their own views openly and confidently, which are then supported by logical reasons and evidence.

Each year, girls choose topics to study from the options below. Key Stage 3 girls also study Philosophy.

 

Year 7

Branding and Corporate Image
Cookery in French
Girls' Hour Radio Programme
Self Portrait on a Ceramic Tile

 

Year 8

Puppetry
Spanish through Art
Feminism in Culture
Investigating World Foods

 

Year 9

The Modernist Movement
Bronze Art Award
Introduction to Film Analysis
Global Perspectives

 

Year 10

American Politics
Science and Literature
The Matrix of Knowledge (pre-history to 1700)
Community Outreach Project

 

Year 11

World Cinema
Evolution of Comedy on Stage and Screen
Matrix of Knowledge (1700 to present)
