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. Science GCSE results are excellent and the subject is thriving in our sixth form.  

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.

We will expect you to teach pupils  across the full age and ability range present in the school in order to   ensure the highest possible standards of pupil achievement, personal   development and wellbeing, promoting interest in the subject   across the full age range of the school.  With the opportunity to teach Key Stage 5 in our growing sixth form experience of a level teaching would strengthen your application but is not essential.


The Candidate

We are seeking a strong, well qualified practitioner with a degree and a teaching   qualification who is keen to develop their own practice to the highest level and take advantage of our excellent professional learning.
