Olive AP Academy – Havering

Our alternative provision academy based in Hornchurch supports young people aged between 11 and 16. We offer a broad curriculum to a diverse group of young people who have experienced difficulty in learning in mainstream schools. We help our students develop the confidence, skills and knowledge they need to be successful in their adult lives.

Our headteacher Ray Lawrence leads an experienced team who support our students to reach their full potential. Our executive headteacher is Mark Vickers.

Our academy’s SEND coordinator is Sue Cox; she can be contacted via the academy office.
