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 Charlotte Wright; she can be contacted via the academy office.
We are updating our website regularly with the latest advice about Coronavirus. Please check our news page for copies of all letters sent to parents/ carers and the most recent information from Public Health England.

The Department for Education have been informed that some parents have received an email stating the following: ‘As schools will be closing, if you’re entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we’ll make sure you’re supported’.

We urge parents and carers that if you receive any emails like this, please do not respond, and delete it immediately.
