Hatcham College

Principal's Welcome

Principal's Welcome

Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham College is part of the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation, a federation of academies that has been educating children in South London since 1876. Today, Hatcham College is a truly energised, diverse 11-18 school community (with two sites) offering an extensive and rich curriculum including specialist teaching in music, drama, sport, languages and ICT. We educate children from Year 7 to Sixth Form through excellent, innovative and personalised teaching.

I feel privileged to lead Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham College. The staff and I here at the College are committed to developing academic excellence and achievement across all subjects. As parents and carers, I recognise and value your contributions and input, and I welcome an open dialogue with you. 

All pupils deserve a great school on their doorstep. Pupils should be able to learn in a calm and orderly fashion, without disruption, where there is room for creativity and innovation. I wish for students to develop intellectual curiosity, perseverance and resilience and so you can rely upon me to take the necessary action to ensure your child’s education is protected.

Whilst the educational landscape and the way schools are organised and run are constantly changing, the foundations of Hatcham College and its long-standing traditions, have not. At the heart of an Askean education lies the College’s core values of aspiration and achievement, personal responsibility, self-discipline and mutual respect.

I am delighted to be working within Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation and serving the children in our community. I look forward to meeting you and working with your child in the coming years.
