Head of Academy's welcome

A welcome to Olive AP Academy - Havering from Tony Machin, Head of Academy

We believe in the Olive Way and our core values are:

Ambition : All challenges can be overcome and education is an important lifelong journey.

Reflection: Learning from experiences and developing a capacity to improve further.

Determination: Not giving up on those who have not experienced success.

Conviction: Everyone has the capacity to reach their potential.

Welcome to Olive AP Academy – Havering, an alternative provision academy where all students can grow and develop academically, socially and morally. We are a ‘family’ that recognises and respects the potential of every student, supporting them to be the very best they can be.

I am proud of our academy’s impressive facilities, which include teaching kitchens, a science lab, multi-sports pitch, art room and state-of-the-art classrooms.

I am delighted to be working alongside Collette Hunnisett, Executive Headteacher, Executive Headteacher, to deliver an ambitious curriculum, which is designed to support all our students and ensure they are ready to succeed in higher education or employment.

We want all our students to leave us as resilient and fully confident young adults, who will make a significant contribution to wider society in the future.

Our broad and balanced curriculum underpins our ethos of creativity, innovation and mastering of the basics: reading, writing, communicating and mathematics.

Please don’t hesitate to contact either myself or Collette by emailing info.havering@oliveacademies.org.uk if you would like to visit Olive AP Academy – Havering or need any further information.
