HEADTEACHER-3Welcome message from Sharon Ingham, Principal of Hadrian Academy.

Thank you for your interest in our school. Hadrian Academy is a wonderful, lively and caring community school, located in east Dunstable.


Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions parents have to make. We hope that this website will help you make that choice.

We urge you to visit the school and have a good look around. Please book an appointment through the office. E-mail or tel 01582 618400.

Whilst looking around you will find a dedicated teaching team that works hard to achieve the best for our children and their learning. Children that are disciplined, helpful, happy, hard working and achieving their individual potentials.

Safeguarding procedures are given the highest priority.

We pride ourselves on the exciting curriculum and the standards in literacy and numeracy which are the bedrock for all other learning.

Our vision is to have a school of excellence building further on our identified strengths and caring ethos, where every child is encouraged to reach their full potential.

The vast majority of teaching is good or outstanding at Hadrian and standards at SAT’s in year 2 are consistently above the national average. In 2014 and 2015 core subjects results were significantly above average in the core subjects of reading, writing and maths. These are standards that we will strive towards at all times.

Hadrian Academy is a school that promotes the Arts and we are the only ‘Platinum Sing Up’ school In Dunstable and all children have opportunities to learn an instrument and read music in Key stage 2. We enter children into LAMDA exams and provide scholarships for the Royal Academy of Dance, which holds its classes on Hadrian Academy school site.

Hadrian Academy provides many sporting opportunities for the children.  We believe. We believe in entering competitions, interschool and beyond, and see that encouraging sport and developing healthy lifestyles is a vital part of our role.

To support working families we have a Before and After School Care Club, which extends provision from 7.30am to 5.25pm.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child/ren into our community and I am confident it will be a successful partnership over the coming years.

Our school’s motto is Achieving Excellence Together.

Sharon Ingham, Principal
