Welcome to Haberdashers’ Aske’s Crayford Academy Alumni
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Crayford Academy’s Alumni as our school enters an exciting new chapter in our history. We are very proud of the hard work demonstrated by our pupils since the Academy was created in 2010 which has been shown with the commitment pupils have made to their GCSEs, A Levels, vocational qualifications and apprenticeships. Establishing the alumni for Crayford Academy pupils allows us to share the success of our former pupils as they continue their education, or begin their professional lives, whilst reinforcing the proud sense of community that is instilled in Crayford Academy pupils.
This summer we received our first set of A Level results, which included several A* and A grades, enabling pupils to accept places at Russell Group universities including Queen Mary, Warwick and Cardiff as well as other prestigious universities including the Universities of Essex, Kent, Keele, Leicester and Sussex. We are also delighted with pupils securing apprenticeships and employment with the following companies: Adams Mitchell, Incomera, Laing O’Rourke, Conway FM, The Specialist Works, Wembley Stadium and Metropolitan Police. We wish our former pupils every success as they begin the next stage of their career!
The Crayford Academy community
We strongly believe the Haberdashers’ experience prepares pupils to be successful with a stimulating curriculum, a dedicated careers service and many unique enrichment opportunities. Crayford Academy’s Alumni will act as an inspiration for future Crayford Academy pupils to aim high and have the confidence to succeed whether they choose to continue their education or begin their careers. The staff of Crayford Academy will be delighted to welcome back our alumni and hear of their achievements and how we supported pupils to accomplish their ambitions.
Careers advice and mentoring
When pupils leave Crayford Academy we are keen to maintain support with education and careers advice or to provide employment and training opportunities to our alumni. We also hope our alumni will act as role models and mentors to our current pupils and offer guidance and work experience to ensure our future alumni are prepared for when they leave Crayford Academy. The creation of the alumni will strengthen the bond between past and present pupils by building both personal and professional networks that reinforce the ethos of: excellence, responsibility, collaboration, tradition, respect and community.
