Natasha Banner

NatashaBlackheath High Senior School Prefect Natasha was among those delighted to receive her results and confirm her place at the University of Edinburgh to study French and Spanish.

A talented musician who has been part of the Blackheath High School family since she was three years old, Natasha received a Music scholarship when joining Year 7.

In Sixth Form, Natasha set up the Law, Economics and Business Society, and for her EPQ sought to answer the question ‘How was ancient Roman law influenced current English law?"

After completing her degree, Natasha hopes to study a law conversion course and flex her language skills by specialising in EU and international law.

Dorcas Banner

DorcasDorcas joined Blackheath High School in Year 12 after being impressed by the DT and Textiles department, where her passions lie.

Dorcas describes the career support she received at Blackheath High School as “really immaculate”. In Year 12, she was supported by Head of Futures Cath Day to secure an “amazing” fully-funded work experience placement in San Francisco, in an ethical jewellery business.

Dorcas’ choice to study at Goldsmiths was partly inspired by fellow pioneer and Blackheath High School alumna Mary Quant, who also went on to study at Goldsmiths. After graduating, Dorcas hopes to further follow in her creative footsteps and set up her own jewellery and fashion business.
