Welcome to the Croydon Headteachers’ Association (CHTA) website..

CHTA was founded to provide networking, support and training to the Head teachers of educational providers in Croydon – whatever their organisational status. Our membership draws from colleagues in nurseries, children’s centres, special schools, primary schools, secondary schools, colleges and all forms of alternative provision across the borough.

Our motto is ‘Leading Learning in Croydon’ because that is at the centre of everything we do in each of our institutions every day.

Our mission is to support excellent educational leadership in the borough leading to improved outcomes and life chances for all our young people, regardless of their circumstances.

After a long period of planning the CHTA became a 40% stakeholder in the Octavo Partnership in April 2015.  Octavo is a company set up to deliver school improvement services in Croydon and beyond.  Together with Croydon Council and the staff of the company we have created a ‘one stop’ service supporting schools in their drive to be outstanding.

Thank you for your interest in CHTA – please get in touch if we can assist you further.

Ros Sandell
President (2018-19)
