The Federation and 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.

Offering education across all key stages which has consistently been judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted, most recently in December 2014.

Facilities at the school are first class; from the building itself to the resources which support the delivery of a broad curriculum including an extremely popular and well maintained Learning Resource Centre. 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.

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.

The Role

We are looking to appoint an outstanding, motivated teacher with a proven track record of achievement to lead our new combined Art & Design Technology Department in this exciting next stage of their development and ensure the continued excellent performance of these popular and successful subjects.

With strong GCSE and A-Level results, particularly A-Level Fine Art where Value Added last year was an impressive +0.60, the Art & Design Technology subjects are an integral and extremely popular part of the curriculum at Crayford Academy. Traditionally, Art & Design Technology have been separate subject areas but we are now looking to build upon the successes of both subjects further and share best practice between them by combining them into one department. This is a perfect role for an existing or new middle leader looking to take on the exiting challenge of leading our new combined Art & Design Department 

As Head of Department, we will expect you to help our pupils achieve academically and personally. There is the opportunity to make a big impact on standards of student attainment through your fresh ideas, motivational skills and keen focus on improvement.

If you feel that this position is of interest and you have the right experience, skills and are ready for fresh challenges, with the ambition to make a real impact then we’d like to hear from you.
