Hi! My name is Emma and I am so excited to be one of new Heads of House for Blackman. I currently study History, Politics and Chemistry and I also manage Young Enterprise and play tennis and music outside of school.

Rosie and I can’t wait to start organising more competitions, presenting assemblies, motivating Blackman House to be the best it can be, and of course, having fun! I wanted to be Head of House as I thrive in leadership roles, I love working in a team and making sure people have as much fun as they can. I am thrilled to be in this position and can’t wait to get started!


 Hello! My name is Rosie and I am one of the Heads of Blackman House. For A-Level, I am studying History, Psychology and Business.

Since Year 7, I have always wanted to be a Head of House, so I am excited to now have the opportunity to motivate the students in my House, to try different activities, discover new passions, and to enter into the House spirit, all whilst maintaining a friendly, but competitive edge.

I can’t wait to bring new ideas to the House whilst building upon the legacy that those before me have created. I am most looking forward to Sports Day as it is the perfect occasion to really embrace the House spirit by wearing a big inflatable costume, chanting the House song, and encouraging the Blackman House to victory! Finally, one fun fact about me is that I have climbed one of the world’s largest sand dunes in Namibia - it was an experience I will never forget.
