The Haberdashers' Company is one of the Great Twelve Livery Companies and has a long history closely connected to the development of the City of London.
Now, the Company is in the privileged position, thanks to benefactors both past and present, to continue with its educational and other charitable activities.
ACADEMY SCHOOLS AWARDS 2016
Monday 21st November saw Haberdashers’ Hall hosting the first round of the 2016 Academy Schools Awards, an innovative programme designed for City Livery Companies to engage with the new class of Academy Schools. All three schools taking part were from the Haberdashers' Aske’s Federation: Crayford Academy, Hatcham College and Knights Academy.
The winners of each of the preliminary rounds will meet for the final at Mansion House on Monday 17th January 2017. Hatcham College is reigning champion, and judging by the extremely high quality of last night’s presentations, the Haberdashers’ Company is in with a fighting chance this year, too.
