     Thank you for your interest in the post of 2i/c Head of Geography at Haberdasher’s Hatcham College- the founding school in Haberdashers’ Academies Trust South.

    Hatcham College is a wonderful school in which students develop into young adults, with all the choices that their education has provided them. Academic achievement is our core purpose, but no less important is the development of characteristics and values that enable Hatcham alumni to reach their full potential and then go out into the world to effect positive change. ​

    Geography is an extremely popular and successful department. In 2022, the highest GCSE score in the UK was a student at HHC. This is a new post created to reflect the large and increasing number of students choosing this subject at GCSE and A-Level.

    We have the highest of expectations for all our students. This enables us to focus on developing the currency (examination results), character and confidence that they will need to navigate adulthood to find their place in the world. ​

    Students at Hatcham College have an environment with very clear and strict boundaries. This creates an environment that is safe and learning takes place without disruption. Students are rewarded for effort, resilience and making positive choices. Aspiring to be the best that you can be is at the heart of all we do. ​

    At Hatcham College we believe that it is incredibly important for all students to achieve their academic potential, however a good education is much more than that. We believe that these transferable skills are needed for a successful future, whatever career path students choose to pursue. ​

    We want the best people to join our Haberdashers’ community and we are committed to a diverse and inclusive student and staff body.
