The advantages of continuing in education after the age of sixteen are frequently stated and the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation is the ideal place to do so.
The Federation Sixth Form, opened in September 2007, comprises an already well-established Hatcham Campus at Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham College and the newer Knights Campus at Haberdashers’ Aske’s Knights Academy.
Students joining us become part of an integrated Federation Sixth Form. They apply to one campus or the other and lessons take place at the site of their choice. However, our students can take advantage of activities, opportunities and facilities at either site.
The Hatcham campus is an academic sixth form providing of a wide selection of A-levels and a high quality curriculum delivered by specialist teachers and was recently graded outstanding by Ofsted. Our students continue into a wide range of Higher Education (including Oxbridge), Further Education (Music and Art Colleges) and employment.
The Hatcham sixth form provides many opportunities for students to participate in sporting, musical, cultural, community, employment and other activities. It is the expectation that Sixth Form students will honour all their commitments to Federation events and activities particularly in sport, music and drama.
We aim to create a hard-working, friendly and caring environment through the partnership of staff, students, parents, governors, employers and other friends. Our ethos of hard work, aiming for excellence and giving back to the school and wider community is fundamental to our success and is at the core of everything we do.
The Directors of Sixth Form (Pastoral and Performance) are supported by a team of transition, admissions and inclusion staff, all of whom are on hand to offer guidance and support to our students throughout their two years. The Heads of Careers have targeted programmes for each student where needs are ascertained following assessment of skills and strengths. We also put firm emphasis on our Volunteering Programme. There are regular events for the Sixth Form including the London UCAS Fair, Leadership Training, Masterclass Day and many more. Also popular are the termly ‘Federation Lectures’ from prominent speakers across a variety of topics, aimed at stretching the students and preparing them for university education.
To obtain a broad and balanced education Sixth Formers are strongly advised to take advantage of the variety of opportunities on offer in the Extension Studies Programme with a wide range of opportunities as diverse as music, sport, computing, Duke of Edinburgh Awards, the Brilliant Club, the AQA extended project, photography and languages. All subject areas, in addition to classroom based pursuits, will make some of the following available: field trips, work placements, visiting speakers, conferences, workshops and other off-site events. Students take an active part in the life of the school and act as role models for the younger students; in Year 13, they go on to form the selected team of prefects who help to lead our schools.
