Girl emPowered

Delivering an inspiring and ambitious education that is designed specifically for girls is fundamental to the ethos of Blackheath High School, and forms one of the key strategic pillars of the Head’s vision.

Born out of this mission, the Blackheath High School Girl emPowered Collective is a suite of unique initiatives that embody the school’s dedication to fostering the next generation of leaders, innovators and changemakers. The Collective is designed to equip students with the skills and knowledge they need to thrive, and instils in them the confidence and determination to shape a brighter future for themselves and the world around them. As students boldly step forward into the world, they do so armed with the passion, ambition and conviction to leave an indelible mark on the world.

Our Girl emPowered Scholarship Programme is designed to stretch and challenge students with exceptional talent. Successful 11+ and 13+ scholars will be welcomed into a bespoke programme designed to mentor, guide, enrich and empower, by providing them with the knowledge and resources to achieve their goals and dreams. There are Academic, Art, Drama, Music, and Sport Scholarships available.

Our Girl emPowered Enrichment Programme complements the Senior School academic experience by offering students a diverse range of activities, workshops, and initiatives tailored to cultivate skills, passions, and interests outside the classroom. From STEM exploration to artistic expression, creativity to communication skills, the programme fosters a holistic approach to learning, broadens horizons, encourages critical thinking and nurtures the skills that benefit students now and into the future.

Our Girl emPowered Talk Series fosters collaboration and dialogue between the whole school and our community of families to support the holistic development of each student. By providing parents with insights, resources, and guidance, we create a supportive network that empowers students and their families to navigate the educational journey at Blackheath High School with confidence and clarity.
