Schools within the Haberdashers’ Academies Trust South have provided excellent Sixth Form opportunities for well over a hundred years. The Sixth Form at Crayford Academy was established in September 2015 and builds upon this strong record with an ethos and expectations of high academic outcomes.

The Sixth Form at Crayford Academy has grown substantially in recent years with each cohort of students achieving stronger and stronger results in their examinations. Most recently, Ofsted judged the Sixth Form as Good (May 2019) commenting that our ‘teachers know their subjects well and have a good understanding of the course requirements… they readily make themselves available for students who want extra help when they have difficulties mastering a topic’ and ‘as a result, teaching is good, as it students’ overall progress.’

Haberdasher’s Crayford Sixth Form offers the opportunity for young people to study, socialise and develop in a structured and caring environment.

Our students make excellent progress in their studies and become well rounded individuals ready for their next steps in Higher Education, apprenticeships or employment.

We are a highly popular Sixth Form with a thriving community of approximately 130 students who make a significant contribution to school life.

Our Sixth Form Leaders 2024-25

Student leaders 2024-25

As Head Girl, I aim to foster an inclusive and safe environment where everyone feels heard and respected. I also aim to continue building on the community we have formed so far and continue to make it better for all students and staff. I hope to study psychology at the University Of Liverpool, when I leave sixth form, as I hope to become a clinical psychologist in the future.

- Lottie Petrou, Head Girl

As Head Boy, I want to contribute to build upon this amazing community and aim to create an environment where every student feels comfortable being in this school. I want to represent this school alongside my team in a positive light and really portray our Crayford values. After Haberdashers' I hope to enter the medical field attending an amazing school like King's College and continue to help many more people for many more years to come."

- Bami Ajala

"As Deputy Head Girl, I am passionate about creating a supportive and vibrant school community. My role involves collaborating with students and staff to enhance our school experience, organizing events, and ensuring that everyone's voice is heard. I work closely with the leadership team to uphold our school's values and drive academic and personal success for all students. I am dedicated to making our school a place where everyone can thrive. I currently study Child Development, Health and Social Care and Human Biology and am hoping to study Midwifery at                       London  South Bank University next year."

- Mary Ward 

As Deputy Head Boy, my main goal is to increase extra curriculum activity participation throughout the school. I have a passion for music and sports and will do everything in my power to help others find their passions. When I leave Haberdashers' Crayford Academy, I wish to secure an apprenticeship or work full time at an investment security and equity firm, where I wish to progress in a career in that industry."

Enrichment in the sixth form

This year, our Year 12 students have already enjoyed a session with internationally-renowned entrepreneur and speaker Dave McQueen. Many of our students are already involved in charitable work supporting local and international schemes.

Our enrichment programme is varied with students able to choose form a wide range of activities: the Extended Project qualification, which is an excellent preparation for university studies and well-regarded by admissions tutors, Core Maths, our sports and fitness programme, music lessons, the Debating Society and many others. Our students also take part in a range of national competitions, which gives them access to high-calibre mentoring, coaching and networking experiences.

Leadership in the Sixth Form

A key strategy we use to ensure our students can fulfil their personal and academic aspirations is through providing a wide range of opportunities. Student leadership is a key priority and we ensure that all sixth formers have the chance to fulfil a leadership role via our Head Boy and Head Girl Team, becoming a Prefect, Peer Mentoring younger students, charity drives, and by representing the school on a local and even national scale. Our students are fortunate to have the full support and backing of the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers, giving them a distinct advantage that other Sixth Forms cannot offer.


Our Destination pathways are bespoke and cater for a wide range of aspirations. In 2017 we supported 63 students in Year 13 to secure places at University, 5 of whom in highly regarded Russell Group institutions. Alongside that, we also work with numerous guest speakers and apprenticeship providers and a just over a quarter of our students entered the world of employment, apprenticeships and training as a result. Indeed, many of these claimed places on highly sought after A-Level leaver programmes.

Ultimately, teaching and learning is our core business and we are proud to boast a high quality of provision across our curriculum which truly distinguishes our Sixth Form. We are proud of the success academically and personally of the young men and women who, when they leave our Sixth Form, are in a far stronger position to make a success of their lives and contribute to the world in which they live.
