Meet Carrie Senior, Principal

Principal HGAEDWe are proud to be an inclusive, multi-cultural community providing inspiration and vibrancy, safety and support. 

Our vision is to develop students with character, courage and conscience who become academically and personally successful and lead in their community and beyond.

We are officially one of the best academies in England and Wales for student progress. Our most recent results put us in the top 4% of schools nationally for student progress and one of the best in London, according to the latest Department for Education figures.

Our motto is “Aspire, Learn, Succeed”. This means that we look for every member of our community to be keen to learn, to be willing to engage and to be successful in their time with us.

We want our students to be aspirational; we want them to think about what they want to do with their lives, to explore the world and think about where they fit into it, what they can get from it, and what they can offer as well.

If you have any queries please do email us on or call 020 7732 2276.
