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

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

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)
