Offering education across all key stages which has consistently been judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted, most recently in December 2014, following our second year of extremely positive GCSE results we now have students in every year group to year 13 with our first cohort of A level students taking their examinations in 2017.
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.
Our excellent professional learning opportunities for teachers at all stages of their professional development has been commended by external agencies. In particular we offer a robust and supportivedevelopmental and mentoring package for newly qualified teachers.
