Welcome from our Headteacher
Thank you for taking an interest in Marshalls Park Academy.
Our vision is to ensure that all of our students are enabled to achieve to the very best of their ability and beyond. We will achieve this by ensuring that every lesson counts; through good and outstanding teaching and focusing on the individual needs of each and every student. In many respects, our philosophy is straightforward; we want all of our students to receive an excellent education to help them to prepare for their future lives.
Whilst we are currently considered to be “requiring improvement”, we believe that Marshalls Park Academy is a successful and vibrant school at the centre of its local community. The school has been over-subscribed for many years, and has regular appeals for places. I have just started here as Headteacher and yet already I share the passion the students have for the school; I am however ambitious that the school improves further and becomes recognised as a centre of excellent learning for the whole community and beyond.
Marshalls Park Academy is a slightly smaller than average 11-16 secondary school, currently 845 students, set in the London Borough of Havering close to the centre of Romford. As such, we have a mixed demographic of students that is representative of the local area although students will have mixed views as to whether they are from Essex or London!
We believe passionately that to achieve lasting school improvement, the critical element is the investment a school places in its staff, and that starts from recruiting the best teachers and ambitious leaders to instil that climate of change in the school.
I believe Marshalls Park Academy is the perfect choice of school if you desire an excellent education for your child as well as a safe and enjoyable learning environment. If you have the passion, energy and drive to help us become even better, then Marshalls Park could well be the employer of choice for you!
