At Blackfen School our vision is to raise aspirations and release the potential of every young person. We do this through our growth mindset culture which underpins our aspirational ethos. It is a privilege to work with all members of our community to ensure that we realise this vision. Blackfen School for Girls Outstanding schools foster life-long curiosity about life: equipping students with skills and ambition; nurturing professionals whose passion is creating learning that inspires young people to pursue the very best in themselves and in their work. Our students achieve at the highest possible level. There is no ceiling to what they can do or achieve on their journey with us. Our students also gain experience to support their educational careers: performing a role in the school production or visiting galleries in New York, Madrid or Amsterdam; championing a bid to make the school a Fair Trade school or being a member of our student learning consultant team. As Head teacher at Blackfen School, my passion is that young people enjoy their success in school, become mature, responsible, independent, outgoing and disciplined young adults and that aspiring to find and release personal talent becomes a life- long accomplishment. This prospectus provides you with a brief snap shot of the school. Please feel free to arrange a visit to see us “in action”. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to Blackfen School.
