About Haberdashers’ Aske’s Knights Academy
Part of the Haberdasher’s Aske’s Federation, Knights Academy is one of four secondary and five primary schools in this central and south east London multi-academy trust. Educating children since 1876, we are committed to ensuring that children get the best start in life and leave us fully prepared to be successful in their adult lives.
Knights Academy services the local communities of Bromley and Catford in the London Borough of Lewisham with specialisms in ICT and Sport. We are proud of our vibrant, diverse school community and an ethos that lies in our values of high expectations and aspiration, ensuring that every student achieves their full potential. We provide a happy and nurturing environment so that our students mature into well-rounded, healthy young people, with a passion for learning.
At Haberdashers’ Aske’s Knights Academy education represents an ‘outstanding’ start, with a wealth of advantages and opportunities. Our students develop confidence, resilience and self-esteem through their involvement in our academic and extra-curricular enrichment; adding value to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We enable our students to achieve success by focusing on high-quality teaching, providing an engaging and stretching curriculum, and focussing on each child as an individual to draw out their strengths and talents.
We are a school that is built on an ethos of tradition and innovation, respect and responsibility, collaboration and inclusion. It is these moral values that we instil in our students which enable them to both contribute and gain from our school community and the communities in which they live.
As part of our valued staff team, there are ample opportunities to continue your professional development and reach your goals whether you’re just starting out as a teacher or whether you’re looking for your next move upwards. We are lucky to have the ATLAS Teaching School Alliance as part of the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation. The team at ATLAS support teacher training, professional development and school improvement with a particular focus on leadership programmes and curriculum implementation in the core subjects.
We value the important relationships, collaborations and partnership between staff, students and parents. We are never complacent about our achievements – there is always scope for improvement and we want to be an outstanding school – we invite all our prospective staff to join us on the journey to excellence.
