Blackheath High School For Girls

Blackheath GDST High School & Sixth Form

Blackheath High School is an independent day school for girls in Blackheath Village, London and is part of The Girls’ Day School Trust.

A large construction project on a live, complicated and extremely tight site and within a conservation area. Including demolition of existing buildings and construction of a new three-storey main entrance and specialist teaching building, with the creation of a lower ground learning resource centre and new feature central courtyard social space.

The project also included the internal remodelling and refurbishment of the existing Victorian main entrance building into a new Sixth Form with its own dedicated and secure entrance, the existing North and Sports Block.

The aim of this project was to unify the whole school and to create a clear, welcoming and inspiring main entrance on Vanbrugh Park, incorporating the stunning Datchelor stained glass window within a prominent and visible location. We have improved access and movement around the school site by providing clear internal access routes to link the various buildings and provide disabled access to areas currently inaccessible.
