Schools in Blackheath

Blackheath straddles the line between the London boroughs o f Greenwich and Lewisham. Schools at primary level in the two boroughs can be a little patchy and this deteriorates at secondary level. Many parents tend to send their children to local independent schools, or look at state schools outside of the local catchment. There are buses to Dulwich College, Eltham College, and Jams Allen’s Girls School. Local schools receiving the best reports from Ofsted are co-ed Haberdashers Askes’s Hatcham and St Ursula’s Convent (girls only).

Blackheath Transport Links

Blackheath falls into London Transport Zone and although it does not have a tube station, National Rail runs a number of services into the city. Trains run to London Cannon Street, London Victoria and London Charring Cross, with all journeys taking 20 minutes or just under.
