Chairman of Directors

Welcome message from Angela Roberts, Chairman of Hadrian Academy Directors.

Dear Parents,

The Governors are delighted to welcome you to Hadrian Academy which has recently celebrated its 50th Birthday year.

We are proud that our school is a vibrant and happy school. The ethos is one of a safe and caring environment where all children are encouraged to work to their highest capabilities. A great deal of our curriculum development is taught through play or hands on learning, either in the classroom, playground or in whole school events such as growing in the school allotment, planning and implementing enterprise activities or making and flying school made kites.

Our professional teaching and non-teaching support staff work together as a team to provide an excellent standard of education for all pupils.

Safeguarding of every pupil is at the top of our agenda, with staff and Governors fully trained to recognise and respond, should it be necessary to protect your child. We also review and implement all our policies, particularly those on Safeguarding, Code of Conduct, Prevent Duty, Site Safety and Secure Access, Discipline, Special Educational Needs and Equal Opportunities on a regular basis. We had a very good report after our OFSTED Inspection in March 2014.

The Governing Body is experienced and has worked together with Sharon Ingham our Principal, over many years. Our duties as Governors are to raise standards and provide good accommodation including Information Technology throughout the school.

I am honoured to have been elected as your Chair of Governors for Hadrian Academy. This is a highly successful and motivated school, with an excellent record in Dunstable.

Yours sincerely,

Angela Roberts, Chairman of Hadrian Academy Directors

Hadrian Academy is a wonderful, lively and caring primary school, for children aged between 4 and 11 years old.  We are located in east Dunstable, Bedfordshire.  Annually we admit 45 pupils into the reception class.  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 to make that choice.

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.
