Knights Academy

Principal's Welcome

Principal's Welcome

Haberdashers’ KNIGHTS ACADEMY is part of the Haberdashers’ ACADEMIES TRUST, a GROUP of academies that has been educating children in South London since 1876.



We are committed to ensuring that our children get the best start in life and leave us fully prepared to be successful in their adult lives.

Knights Academy is a vibrant, diverse 11-18 school community with an ethos that lies in our values of high expectations, aspiration and ensuring that every child achieves their full potential. We provide a happy and nurturing environment so that our pupils mature into well-rounded, healthy young people, with a passion for learning.

At Haberdashers' Knights Academy, education represents an ‘outstanding’ start, with a wealth of advantages and opportunities that many pupils will have already experienced having attended our excellent primary phase. Our pupils develop confidence, resilience and self-esteem through their involvement in our academic and extracurricular enrichment; adding value to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

We enable our pupils to achieve success by focusing on high-quality teaching, providing an engaging and stretching curriculum, and focusing on each child as an individual to draw out their strengths and talents. We are a school that is built on an ethos of tradition and innovation, respect and responsibility, collaboration and inclusion. It is these moral values that we instil in our pupils which enable them to both contribute and gain from our school community and the communities in which they live. We value the important relationships, collaborations and partnership between staff, pupils and parents.

It will be my privilege to work with you and your child along this exciting journey of their school career, to enable them to achieve the very best.
