On behalf of all the students and staff at Haberdashers’ Aske’s Crayford Academy, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our school. There is a very dynamic atmosphere here at the Academy not least because we are an all-through school in the process of extending our provision in both the primary phase and into the Sixth Form. All students are expected to stay within education to the age of 18 and we hope they will stay with the Academy.
Our curriculum is largely a challenging academic one, designed to ensure all our pupils can reach their potential and acquire the knowledge and qualifications which have currency in the real world. We provide a very strong focus on core subjects - English, mathematics and science – and believe the curriculum offer is greatly enhanced by our subject specialism in music.
We value our place within the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation and work closely with colleagues from the other schools to share expertise and benefit from one another’s strengths. At Crayford we are therefore able to capitalise on a tradition of outstanding educational provision spanning over a hundred years. All staff take advantage of Federation professional development opportunities, guaranteeing commitment from everyone to provide personalised challenge and exceptional support for our students. Crayford Academy has successfully hosted the Federation Conference for 650 teaching and support staff, the focus being professional development and our commitment to raising standards as a team.
We are very proud of the environment in which we work and our students feel the same. Facilities for learning and recreation are first class, purpose built, safe and allow us to cater for a wide range of abilities. We have very high expectations of behaviour and uniform, codes of conduct are clear and we insist students behave respectfully towards others and their environment.
Crayford Academy is very popular with parents and children and brings stability and self-esteem to all involved. In total we serve more than 1400 students across the Crayford and Slade Green sites. As Principal, I am determined that this school, our staff and students will make a positive difference to the community. I look forward to meeting you and working in partnership to secure the very best education for your child.
