"How did we do it? I'll tell you now, we didn't give up, we didn't know how". Everyone must read this incredible and empowering poem from one of our Year 3 pupils.


Our students are bright, confident and enthusiastic learners with high expectations of themselves. They are prepared to step outside their comfort zones to test themselves and enjoy the new challenges and experiences that we offer.

At Blackheath High School, academic excellence is underpinned by an extensive array of co-curricular opportunities and we pride ourselves on the diversity and inclusivity of our school community. Applications are welcomed from girls and families who will embrace an environment where girls aim high, individuality is prized and girls are determined to make a difference in all they do.

To discuss the possibility of your daughter joining Blackheath High School, whatever stage they have reached in their education, please contact our Admissions team:

Senior School applications for Year 7 entry

This should be submitted by the end of November when your daughter is in Year 6. Please let us know, in as much detail as possible, about your daughter’s interests so that we gain a full picture of her as an individual. 

Complete our online application form

11+ Admissions

Every 11+ applicant is invited to an individual interview in November or December prior to sitting our 11+ entrance exam. This is a friendly, informal session to help us to get to know your daughter better. We will also contact your daughter’s school for a reference to gain further background information about her progress and interests.

At the same time as the 11+ interview, our Head meets a small group of applicants’ parents to answer any queries that they may have about the school and its ethos.

In January, 11+ candidates then sit an hour long 11+ English and Mathematics examination. The English paper consists of a comprehension test and a piece of creative writing. Girls also sit a non-verbal reasoning paper which lasts approximately 50 minutes. A sample 11+ Mathematics Test and English Paper can be downloaded below:

Prospective Pupils’ Afternoon

We appreciate what an important decision choosing your daughter’s future education is. We therefore invite all girls we offer places to, to visit us with their parents for an afternoon in February after the half term break. The girls have another opportunity to spend time in our school with our pupils and teachers. Their parents can meet with our Senior Leadership Team who will talk them through how we help settle our new pupils happily into Blackheath High.

Our Head of Year 7 visits all our new girls in their primary school and reassures the girls about starting at Blackheath High and gains further insight into each girl’s learning style. At the beginning of July we invite our new Year 7 girls and their parents to an evening meeting to discuss the move into our senior school.  The girls meet their form tutors and parents learn about school uniform requirements, the foreign language choices that we offer our students and all the clubs and societies that we run.

13+ Admissions

There are now a small number of scholarships and places available for 13+ admissions, and these follow the same time-scale as the 11+ examinations.

Sixth Form Admissions

We welcome gifted girls from local secondary schools into our Sixth Form at Blackheath High School. We also offer a range of scholarships, prizes and means-tested bursaries to students who would really benefit from studying here. We are also pleased to award four means-tested HSBC Scholarships which can be worth as much as a 100% of fees. These are awarded each year to girls joining us from the maintained sector and have been made possible thanks to the generous support of the HSBC Global Education Programme. All girls who have applied for a bursary will automatically be considered for an HSBC Scholarship and no separate application is needed.

If your daughter wishes to apply for a scholarship or a means-tested bursary in our Sixth Form, she usually needs to apply for a place by early November when she is in Year 11. Our scholarship assessment exams takes place in the middle of November. All 16+ scholarship/bursary candidates sit an hour long English examination and nominate two further subjects to be assessed in that they wish to study at AS-Level.  If candidates nominate Art as one of their assessments, they will need to submit an art portfolio.

The best performing candidates in our Sixth Form scholarship/bursary tests will be invited for a scholarship interview with the Head, who will award Sixth Form scholarships and bursaries to the most deserving girls in Year 11.

We aim to make most of our Sixth Form offers in December. Once your daughter has accepted a place in our Sixth Form, we will invite her to visit the Sixth Form to meet new classmates and gain further information about the subjects that they will be studying.

Sixth Form Information Evening

In the autumn term, we hold an 'Into the Sixth Form' information evening which offers a further chance for prospective Sixth Form students to consider which subjects to study at AS-Level. We warmly welcome their parents to attend and discover the opportunities that we can offer their daughters here at Blackheath High School. For further information and to register your interest, please contact Ms Allen on 0208 557 8448 or


Occasional Vacancies

Occasional vacancies sometimes arise as a result of families relocating. If you are interested in your daughter joining in Years 8 to 10, do contact our Senior Admissions team as soon as possible. We also appreciate that families often wish to apply for a place at Blackheath High School midway through the academic year and our Admissions team will be able to guide you further on this. All candidates must pass our entrance examinations in English and Mathematics and attend an interview with our Head. We will then approach their current school for a reference.

Bursary Admissions

If you are interested in applying for a means-tested bursary, please indicate this on your application form. We will then forward you a password so that you can complete the GDST online bursary application form. Your application can then be assessed to ascertain whether or not your family will qualify for a bursary and if so, whether this could be for a full or a partial bursary. 

In order to be awarded such a bursary, your daughter needs to be one of best performing candidates in our January 11+ entrance examinations. She also needs to have impressed us with her potential at interview.

Scholarship Admissions

We also offer a range of Art, Music and Sport scholarships to gifted girls which should be applied for by the end of November.  Girls will be short-listed for assessment in January once we have assessed that they are academically able enough to thrive at Blackheath High.

Girls who perform outstandingly well in our 11+ entrance examinations will be invited to attend an additional scholarship interview with our Head.  Academic scholarships and bursaries will then be awarded, based upon each girl’s potential.
