"promoting excellence"

Haberdashers' Aske's Knights Academy opened in September 2005 on the old Malory School site. I welcomed the opportunity to lead this exciting new school. We have both a  highly qualified and experienced leadership team and a full complement of specialist teachers.

Our  accommodation was temporary, although refurbished to the highest standards until we moved into the new building at Easter 2007. All children entering Knights from September 2007 will be able to take full advantage of the tremendous resources available.  Even before the new building was opened, however, we had established the ethos of a new school, of a Haberdashers’ school and of a sport specialist academy. Our first year’s examination results at KS3 have shown a significant improvement on those of the predecessor school and our first GCSE results have trebled those of the previous school

In 2004 the Federation of Haberdashers' Aske's Hatcham College & Haberdashers' Aske's Knights Academy was set up by the Haberdashers' Company in order to increase the availability of an Aske's education to more students and make a wider use of the strengths that Aske's has to offer.

The Aske's Vision is one where all students in the Federation are inspired to reach their full potential, regardless of ability or background, where aspirations and achievements are constantly raised through the highest quality academic, personal and vocational teaching and guidance, and where the students and staff at the two academies benefit from each other's strengths's.

Knights' students are full members of the Haberdashers' family of schools. We work closely with the highly successful Hatcham College and  participate in  activities with Haberdashers' schools across the country.

I am happy to lead Knights Academy in its new premises, on to ever increasing achievement as we prepare young people for citizenship in the 21st century.


The Academy was rebuilt on the Malory School site in Launcelot Road, Bromley Kent, BR1 5EB.
There will eventually be 1300 students on roll from 11 - 18 years. There will be 208 places available for Year 7 in September 2008.

Information about the Academy can be obtained from the following:-  

  • Here on our website
  • Through our Prospectus

  • An Open Day will be held at Haberdashers' Aske's Knights Academy, Launcelot Road, Bromley, BR1 5EB on Thursday 4 October from 10.00am - 6.00pm. I will give a presentations at 10.30am, 12.00pm, 1.30pm and 5.00pm

We are proud of the history of Haberdashers' Schools, which goes back 300 years, and has always stood for excellence and quality in education. As a Haberdashers' school our ethos is one of MUTUAL RESPECT AND RESPONSIBLE BEHAVIOUR.

Our catchment area is three miles (4.8kms) and south of the Thames. The radial distance is measured as a direct line from the Academy's main building entrance on Launcelot Road. Home to Academy distance is measured as the direct line distance between the applicant's home to the Academy's main building entrance on Launcelot Road


The Academy curriculum is accessible, inclusive, challenging, flexible and on-line with e-learning, video-conferencing and wider understanding of the internet as an enabling factor. It is a curriculum for the 21st century, blending the best of academic and vocational elements.

ICT is not only be a 'tool' for learning but underpins the whole curriculum enabling collaboration and communication within local, national and global contexts. 

The Academy is different from a normal school in that its curriculum will not necessarily be delivered within a classroom of four walls; it could even be delivered without a teacher. The Academy offers single sex teaching wherever possible in Years 7-11 and co-education for Post 16 courses.

Through the National Curriculum and Federation mission we aim to create an environment in which achievement is a prime factor. This is within a framework of equality of opportunity, spiritual, moral, cultural and social commitment and a balance of individual and institutional needs. Students are entitled to quality in all areas of their education and it is management's responsibility to ensure that this is maintained. A curriculum must demonstrate that it is providing value in relation to its resources.

As a sport specialst academy we offer 4 hours of curriculum Physical Education a week as well as out of hours opportunities for physical activities. Whilst aiming for the highest sporting achievement we are also committed to the concept of 'sport for all'. A healthy life style is vital to all young people and regular exercise contributes to this.

Our curriculum offers a wide range of opportunities for all students whatever their ability, interests and ambitions. We have a personalised approach providing the flexibility for progression at a time appropriate to the individual student.

Aims of the Academy

Wherever possible:

  • To provide single-sex education for students up to the age of 16 and co-education in the sixth form
  • To ensure that all students receive a broad, balanced and high quality education including extra activities in an extended day
  • To raise levels of achievement
  • To work with our local community
  • To explore innovative ideas in education
  • To involve business and industry in education

We work in partnership with parents to ensure our students achieve their very best. We want our leavers to be independent, creative, knowledgeable, responsive and proud of whatever they do in the future.

I look forward to continuing a strong partnership of students, parents, staff and the local community.


Wherever possible the Academy offers Single Sex teaching in Year 7-11,which enable us to personlise learning and maximise achievement.  We offer co-education at Post 16 in order to prepare for Univeristy, College and Life.

The curriculum offered at Haberdashers’ Aske’s Knights Academy is broad, accessible, flexible, challenging and inclusive. Students are offered choices throughout their school career in order to follow personalised learning pathways within a framework of equality of opportunity, spiritual, moral, cultural and social commitment. A “stage not age” approach enables students to take qualifications when they are ready, rather than when their age dictates they should be ready.

Students are given the opportunity to experience learning beyond the classroom and with students in all year groups through specific learning days. Residential trips and fieldwork feature in every year group.

The Sports Specialism provides students with an excellent range of physical and leadership learning experiences.

ICT is not only a ‘tool’ for learning but underpins the whole curriculum enabling collaboration and communication within local, national and global contexts.

Excellent new facilities enable all teaching and learning to take place within state of the art accommodation with specialist teaching.

Key Stage 3

Students follow a common curriculum which will facilitate transition from Key Stage 2 (KS2).   Flexible setting based on KS2 SATS and NFER score results are used for all subjects. Thorough monitoring of student achievement means that sets are reviewed regularly, and where appropriate, changes made.  Specific learning difficulties are identified and other special needs addressed, including those of the more able student.

From Year 8 students follow a Level 2 ICT course (AIDA) which is, for the majority of students, accredited in Year 9. This provides a full programme of major skills and practices.

In order to meet the personalised learning agenda, students spend two years in key stage 3 and three years in Key stage 4. This enables all students to take their GCSE / Vocational qualifications when they are ready. Many students are therefore able to begin post-16 courses in year 11.

Key Stage 4

In addition to the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Religious Education, Physical Education and Science, KS4 options are chosen.  These are designed to provide a GCSE and vocational programme whereby the core is enriched by a choice of subjects incorporating Modern Foreign Languages, the Arts and Humanities, Technology and Business Education.

At both Key Stages Enrichment activities will be provided as part of the extended day, in a compulsory programme to broaden and enhance the learning experience.  Careers Education, Enterprise Education and Citizenship is integral to all areas of the curriculum with a Work Experience placement for all students in Year 10.

Post 16 - from September 2006

Students are able to choose from a wide range of Advanced Subsidiary, Advanced Level courses and Advanced Vocational Certificate in Education and other vocational courses at Post 16 across the Federation, at either Hatcham College or Knights Academy.

Personal Social Health & Citizenship Education is compulsory throughout the 3 key stages.

Reporting and Assessment
At all stages students’ progress will be regularly assessed and reported upon to parents. Ongoing assessment is essential in developing a curriculum to suit the needs of all our students.


Knights Academy is a Specialist Sports Academy. Extra funding provides additional accommodation, resources, coaching staff and teachers resulting in access to a very high standard of sports facilities.

We will pursue excellence for all in PE & Sport and excellence through PE & Sport. We will raise standards of achievement in PE and Sport for all our students. We will use the power of PE & Sport to enhance their academic, personal and social development. We will increase their self-esteem, infuse them with a sense of pride in their successes, encourage them to strive for improvement, motivate them to achieve more and thus raise their standards of attainment in all areas of the curriculum.

We will promote links between schools, share resources, develop and spread good practice to further raise standards for all students. Knights Academy will make young people healthier, encourage them to develop their self-discipline and teamwork skills, develop their leadership potential and introduce them to activities they may enjoy and derive health benefits from, for a lifetime.

By providing enhanced opportunities and offering encouragement to engage in PE & Sport as spectators, participants, coaches, administrators or officials the whole community of Knights Academy will be included in the benefits that PE & Sport can provide.
