Making electronic quizzes with @yr6bhs. Some excellent (and tricky) questions. I will hang my certificate from Mia and Katie up with pride (I didn’t know pizza originated in Greece!) @BlackheathHigh @BlackheathSci #STEAMWeek https://t.co/ZEiuYpeRDi

Academic studies are brought to life by frequent visits and trips and our girls benefit greatly from learning outside of the classroom. Our extensive programme of trips begins from Nursery School age, with girls enjoying residential trips from Year 5, and continues into Sixth Form.
Trips, such as a recent visit to Iceland, develop strong global and cultural awareness.
Our students visit conferences, museums, art galleries, theatres, farms, and many other places of interest. We are fortunate to be close enough to Central London to take advantage of its wealth of opportunities, while also having good transport routes to rural areas of Kent and Sussex and Europe.
Residential trips allow more time for in-depth learning and bring many other benefits including the development of independence and confidence.
