Sport

Sport is an integral part of school life at Blackheath High. Our aim is for the students to develop a lifelong love of exercise. Our curriculum is designed with this aim in mind and is complemented by an impressive co-curricular programme.

While in pursuit of participation for all, we also provide opportunities for students to excel and reach outstanding levels of success to complement the vast co-curricular programme on offer.

Sport is enjoyed and valued by all our students and helps them to develop qualities such as resilience, leadership and teamwork.

Junior School

In the Junior School, curriculum lessons include Netball, Hockey, Swimming, Gymnastics, Dance and Cross Country. Co-curricular clubs are also run before school and after school to enhance the girls' education. Our clubs are non-selective and open to pupils of all abilities.

Our girls have PE lessons twice a week: a double games lesson at our Sports Campus and a single lesson in the gymnasium or playground, depending on activity. Throughout the year groups, we focus on invasion and co-operative games across the curriculum.
