About Haberdashers' Aske's Crayford Academy
Haberdashers’ Aske’s Crayford Academy is a very successful 3-18 school, proud to belong to the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation. We offer an exciting and innovative model for education within the community that we serve, with broad appeal to parents and pupils alike. Belonging to a Federation of schools affords our pupils even greater advantage, through shared staff expertise and the opportunity to compete in sporting and extra-curricular activities. There is a focus at Crayford Academy on the importance of academic studies, particularly in essential literacy and numeracy skills, which we believe provide greater access to the breadth of secondary subjects offered.
We offer education across all key stages which has consistently been judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted, most recently in December 2014.
We are very proud of the environment in which we work and our pupils feel the same. Facilities at the school are first class, purpose built, safe and allow us to cater for a wide range of abilities, from the building itself, to the resources which support the delivery of a broad curriculum. Our playing fields, gymnasium, drama theatre and ICT facilities all contribute to ensuring we deliver an education for character, a feature of all Haberdashers’ schools that is part of our DNA.
We take a comprehensive mix of children and expect nothing less than the highest personal goals for each pupil. Where pupils are disadvantaged, we expect them to make rapid progress to catch up with their peers. Our focus is to ensure each child we teach can read, write and do mathematics to a good standard in order to be successful in their education and life. We have a thriving Sixth Form, and when you meet these students, you will notice that standards of behaviour and uniform, codes of conduct and good manners are consistent. Sixth Formers provide role models for younger children in the secondary phase of the school and are able to help staff protect our values and ethos.
Haberdashers’ Aske’s Crayford Academy is 30 minutes from London Bridge by train and the school’s proximity to the capital is a strong factor in enabling teachers to enhance the cultural experience for our pupils through enrichment activities.
Our excellent professional learning opportunities for teachers at all stages of their professional development has been commended by external agencies. We will do all we can to ensure you are the best practitioner you can be.
