About Haberdashers' Aske's Knights Academy
The Haberdashers’ Aske's Federation is a flourishing family of three all-through 3-18 academies:
We strive for excellence in all that we do, whether that is in standards of academic attainment, uniform, or behaviour. We enable our pupils to achieve success by focusing on the individual and by providing an ‘outstanding’ curriculum, including an elite science and elite business programme at post 16.
Through the excellent provision offered through our sport specialism and the extensive extra-curricular activities, our pupils develop confidence and self-esteem. 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 pupils which enables them to contribute to our school community and the communities in which they live.
Our primary phase Knights Temple Grove exceeded the floor standard in 2012 and continues to do so in 2013. The levels of progress made by our children in a short space of time have been nothing short of miraculous.
Our Sports Specialism plays a vital role in developing the self-esteem of the school and the students, and gives the academy a sense of its own worth. We play a pivotal role in the sports life of the borough, as a community hub in the Lewisham Sports Partnership.
We value our place within our local community, and our staff and students work hard to have a positive impact upon it. Our most important partners are our parents. We hold parents evenings, consultations and information days and have a popular and effective PTA. We keep in close contact with our parents through regular letters and invitations to events at the Academy.
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.
