Welcome to our 2007/08 Academic Year. Our Head Teacher, Mr May introduces us to you.

A broad and varied curriculum

We are a mixed, well provided, comprehensive secondary school on the eastern fringes of London, just to the north east of Hornchurch.

We pursue excellence of all kinds and give recognition to achievement and to effort. We encourage pupils to grow in self-confidence, develop initiative and to value themselves. At the same time, we teach them to value other people, to co-operate with them and show them consideration and respect.

Our values of behaviour, appearance and courtesy are traditional. We attach great importance to good manners and civilised, considerate behaviour.

We've provided a quick find for the information on our site, or you can use the Search Box, below. You can get help on finding your way around our site. For more information about us, please read our latest news.

The School
Emerson Park School is a mixed, county, comprehensive school for pupils aged 11 to 16 years. It is a medium sized school, admitting up to 200 eleven year olds annually, of all abilities.

Front aspect As a medium sized school, we have a number of advantages. The School is big enough to be able to provide excellent resources, yet small enough to enjoy a community atmosphere. All pupils are known well by those who teach them and so are able to enjoy a sense of security and continuity throughout their schooling.

We value equally the education of all our pupils, whatever their ability. We have high expectations and endeavour to meet fully their different needs. By providing pupils with varied and challenging learning experiences, we aim to develop the unique qualities and talents of each pupil.

Aims of the School
Emerson Park School offers its pupils a unique educational experience, philosophy and heritage. We aim to support our pupils' educational growth in mind, body and spirit, to build upon their prior learning, develop their unique talents and potential, and prepare them for the next steps in their lives. Through our distinctive ethos, curriculum and teaching, we aspire to excellence in learning, individual progress and achievement. We encourage and challenge all of our students to be the best they can be and to make a positive contribution in school and beyond. We will promote three central themes:

  1. We strive to offer the highest standards in teaching and learning, backed by individual progress mentoring. We keep parents informed and involved with their child's education through regular reports and meetings.
  2. We aim to make learning interesting and enjoyable. Our curriculum aims to offer a broad balance of essential and wider experiences so that each child can find something they can enjoy and in which they can find success. The breadth of subjects will develop their knowledge, skills and understanding needed for the ever-changing world. As a Specialist Sports College, we believe that sport can offer something for everyone and is a way of promoting standards of learning throughout the school. We specifically aim to raise standards of health and fitness, to develop student leadership and responsibility and offer special opportunities in sport.
  3. We want our students to be happy at school, as this encourages successful learning. We therefore treat our students with respect and as individuals in a caring, supportive and safe community. We ask our students to treat others as they would wish to be treated themselves. We recognise the role the School has within the wider community and we work with parents, primary schools, colleges and other agencies. We aim to encourage our students to become excellent citizens and our citizenship education programme has a key role within the School.


Havering offers plenty of facilities to take GCSE studies further at Havering Sixth Form College. The map identifies secondary schools in Havering. Those with a sixth form entry have a hyperlink from the numbered circle.

Location of Havering Secondary schools We have strong links with both our local colleges. Staff from the colleges liaise with the School on a number of issues and a lot of work is done to ensure that those wishing to continue their education after sixteen can make the transition to college with confidence.

As well as advice on course choice, pupils are given opportunities to visit college and sample the various courses for themselves.

The majority of our pupils choose to transfer to one of the colleges at sixteen.

There are other paths to further education open as well.

If you've decided to continue your education, find out about your entitlement to the Government's post-16 OffsiteEducation Maintenance Allowance.

Life long learning
Even when you move into work, you'll soon find you won't have stopped learning - it may just have taken a different form. There are plenty of reasons to keep up the formal learning:

  • moving jobs within your company and want to feel more confident ?
  • going for promotion, but need a vocational qualification ?
  • getting a job in Europe and want to master the language ?
  • changing career and need a new skill ?
  • going on holiday and want to make the most of it ?
  • get back into the habit before starting that OffsiteOpen University course ?

Whatever your reason for wanting to learn, if you've been out of education for a while, take a look at the OffsiteDCSF Lifelong Learning site and OffsiteNational Organisation for Adult Learning, for the information and confidence to get started again.
