The Pointer School

Pointers was established by Miss Muriel and Miss Della Pointer in 1950. It is housed in two large, double-fronted, detached Victoria houses Blackheath. Pointers has always had an outstanding reputation as a pre-preparatory and preparatory school for boys and girls aged 3-11. Central to our ethos and all our activities is the Christian faith, and all children at Pointers are taught this. We also recognise that children should learn about the variety of belief systems that exist in our society.
