Haberdashers’ Hatcham College aspires to improve life chances of our young people and support our local community. We continue to be a warm and welcoming College and Federation for everyone. We believe it always has been and always will be. Our vision is built upon our core values of aspiration and achievement, personal responsibility, self-discipline and mutual respect.
Education can make a real difference and we take pride in our diverse community. We are always here for you, regardless of your race, age, sexuality, gender, religion, faith, learning need, social circumstance or anything else which makes you who you are. The College stands together with all of our pupils, staff, parents, carers and the entire community in condemning prejudice and racism.
