A world of opportunities.
Our pupils have a world of opportunities at their fingertips through our unique character curriculum: The Haberdashers’ Advantage.
Thanks to our links with the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers and other significant organisations, every Haberdashers pupil experiences sports, music, art and culture in a way like no other.
By giving them this advantage, we help our pupils to develop into happy, confident, successful individuals who will contribute to making their communities – and the world – a better place.
Character Values: Caught, Taught & Sought
Through the Haberdashers’ Advantage, pupils have unique opportunities to develop:
- Intellectual Values: Driving them to pursue knowledge, truth and understanding.
- Moral Values: Helping them to do the right thing.
- Civic Values: Supporting them to be responsible citizens.
- Performance Values: Enabling them to act with confidence.
There are three ways we develop these character values in our pupils:
They are communicated intentionally through the curriculum.
E.g., direct teaching in PSHE
curriculum or assemblies
Staff act as role models, playing an important role in shaping each learner's character.
E.g, exposure to school values
Through extracurricular and enrichment activities outside of lessons.
The Haberdashers’ Advantage in action
|Annual Youth Conference
|New Literacy Festival
|Livery Academy Awards
Working in partnership with our
Youth Advisory Board means
we can use this event to inspire
conversations and drive actions on the issues and interests that matter to our children and young people.
A new literacy festival is underway
with various events throughout
the year, such as a spelling bee,
reading clubs, and debating, and
culminating in a celebration of
workshops and activities.
A special Haberdashers’ Company run event for sixth formers, the Livery Awards are a competition where students pitch a business idea to panel of judges like the TV show “Dragon’s Den”. In 2023, Tim
Campbell MBE was a panel judge.
