The Pointer School
Founded in 1950 by Muriel and Dela Pointer, The Pointer School has been educating children in Blackheath for over 70 years. The Pointer sisters ran “ThePointer Dance School” from the 1920s until the founding of the prep school on its current site.
Over the following years, The Pointer School has flourished and grown into a large successful Prep and Pre-Prep school, while still retaining its quirky character and Christian family ethos. The Pointer School pupils are instantly recognisable in their unique purple and green uniforms, and are well-known throughout Blackheath and Greenwich for their cheerful nature and kind hearts. We believe this is attributed to our outstanding of pastoral care.
All adults in our school, from teachers to playground assistants, work to create a loving and fun environment where children are taught to value mistakes and take pride in the accomplishments of themselves and others. Our pupils grow up with a sense of belonging and respect for the diverse world that we live in.
We place a strong emphasis on holistic education, with an extensive wraparound care programme, Holiday Clubs and camps, and over 50 extracurricular clubs, from gardening to coding.
At Pointers, school is so much more than just a classroom.
