Our links with our local community are a vital part of our identity as a school. We devote time and energy to supporting a range of initiatives in local primary and secondary schools, day centres for the elderly, the Blackheath Conservatoire and the Old Royal Naval College.

Our Year 4 girls have been involved in a fabulous Cantata, written by composer Lin Marsh and performed with Invicta Primary School at St Alfeges Church Greenwich; our Digital Leaders teach Silver Surfers how to use social media; local primary schools join with us for a spectacular day celebrating European Day of Languages; plus we offer GCSE Greek and Astronomy to Year 11 students at local secondary schools.

We are totally committed to the Shine Support and Help in Education Project and provide a series of Saturday morning classes under the ‘Serious Fun on Saturdays’ umbrella. We fund thirty Year 5 children from local primary schools to come to our site and experience outstanding teaching and specialist facilities so that aspirations are raised and horizons are broadened.

We aim to be good neighbours and open our facilities for local hire or charity events. We also host a regular ‘neighbour forum’ at Vanbrugh Park to facilitate good communication with local residents.
