The headteacher has only been in post since January 2016. However, he has already made an accurate assessment of the key areas which need to be changed in order to establish ‘a culture of excellence and ambition’.
The school currently has a non-selective admissions policy. Admissions follow Government and local authority criteria using proximity to the school and the existence of siblings already on roll as the initial factors in guaranteeing admission. Our intake number currently stands at 180 students.
For 2016 entry, we filled 165 of our 180 places on first choice preference. We regularly receive a large number of appeals for places; in 2016 none of these were successful because we are full. Our admissions are between 1.6km and 2km from the school, but it does vary.
Following discussions with the Local Authority, Marshalls Park Academy have agreed to admit an additional 60 pupils as part of its Year 7 intake for September 2018. This means that the admissions number will increase from 180 pupils to 240 pupils. This links to the larger redevelopment and expansion plan that has already been out for consultation.
Enquiries about admissions should go to the London Borough of Havering. Please see the links below for documents relating to admissions.
Our 2016 Exam Results
Marshalls Park has long been a heavily over-subscribed school, and it is rare that parental preferences beyond first choice can be accommodated; much of the reason for this popularity is our consistently strong examination results, especially with a strong commitment to high standards in Maths and English.

Our predecessor school, Marshalls Park School, was inspected by Ofsted in March 2016; the school was judged as Requires Improvement, but Ofsted recognised the process of change that the school was undertaking following the appointment of the new headteacher. Whilst we don’t currently have an Ofsted judgement, we have included our predecessor school’s report below.
Choosing a school is an important decision, one that should not be taken lightly. Should you wish to visit us to have a look around, you can do so by either of the following:
All applicants refused a place have a right of appeal to an independent appeal panel constituted and operated in accordance with the School Admission Appeals Code.
For information on the timetable for the appeals process and to lodge an appeal online parents should visit www.havering.gov.uk/admissions/appeal within 20 days of being notified that their application has been unsuccessful.
The school can only consider one appeal application for each child during each Academic year. In normal circumstances, there is no right to a second appeal for the same School within the same School year. However, if there has been a significant and material change in the family’s circumstances which they believe affects the level of priority under which the application was processed, for example, if the family had moved house, the school may consider a second application as long as a parent/carer can provide evidence of the changed circumstances. If the second application is accepted but a place is still not available at the school requested, parents/carers will be given the right to a second appeal hearing.
