About Haberdashers' Aske's Crayford Academy
Haberdashers’ Aske’s Crayford Academy is part of the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation, a Federation of academies that has been educating children in South East London since 1876. We are committed to ensuring that our children get the best start in life and leave us fully prepared to be successful in their adult lives as workers, as parents and as partners.
At Crayford Academy, we focus on academic development inside and outside of the classroom; developing in our students a love of learning that allows them to extend their horizons and discover new interests. Expectations of our pupils are high from the start. We take pride in getting to know pupils and parents, working in partnership to achieve the best possible personal, social, and academic outcomes for each of our students.
We are very proud of the environment in which we work and our pupils feel the same. Facilities for learning and recreation are first class, purpose built, safe and allow us to cater for a wide range of abilities. 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.
Many pupils in year 7 will have already experienced life in this school, having attended our primary phase. This is important, as it helps us embed our ethos at an early stage in the secondary – expectations of our pupils are high from the start. We are a larger than average school that takes pride in getting to know pupils and parents, working in partnership to get the best possible academic results for children and providing an education for character that is synonymous with the Haberdashers’ schools.
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. .
