Welcome message from Hannah Bennett, Principal of Hadrian Academy.


Our school’s motto is Achieving Excellence Together. We are a lively and caring school, proud of our reputation for academic excellence. Our exciting curriculum and focus on growth mindset aims to ensure that every child has confidence in their own abilities and are motivated to challenge themselves in their learning.

In addition to high academic standards, Hadrian Academy is a school that promotes wider opportunities. We hold the ‘Gold Arts Award’ and we are the only ‘Platinum Sing Up’ school In Dunstable. 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. We also provide many sporting opportunities for the children. We believe in entering competitions, interschool and beyond, and see that encouraging sport and developing healthy lifestyles is a vital part of our role.

Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions parents make. We hope that this website will help you make that choice. To support working families we have a Before and After School Care Club, which extends provision from 7.30am to 5.25pm.

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

We would be delighted to show you around our wonderful school. Please book an appointment through the office. Email or tel 01582 618400. We look forward to welcoming you and your children into our community and I am confident it will be a successful partnership over the coming years.

Hannah Bennett, Principal
