About Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation

Welcome to the Haberdashers Federation and thank you for visiting our website. We are a
multi-academy trust consisting of four secondary schools and five primary
schools situated in south east London. We have also been designated as a Teaching School.

imperative at that time was to ensure that every child in our care received the best possible
education in order to make the best start in life. That moral imperative remains today,
underpinned by our values of aspiration and achievement, personal responsibility, self-
discipline and mutual respect.

In a complex world, we need our children and young people to be as well equipped for their

time they leave us they will have experienced a range of opportunities that not only build
their mind but also build their character.

We are proud to be a diverse community and take seriously the need to ensure that every
child, young person and adult connected with our schools feels included, welcomed and
listened to. This is an important part of who we are and our commitment to equality and
fairness. This commitment remains at the forefront of our work.
