Welcome and History

Welcome to Concordia Academy

Children have only one chance at receiving a quality education and it is the job of everyone at Concordia Academy to ensure that it is the best it could possibly be. We have an ambitious and dynamic vision for our school that includes setting a record of high quality outcomes for all of our students.

Our school is underpinned by a blend of values such as respect, hard work and high expectations, coupled with innovations in relation to teaching and learning. We work together to embed a culture of success, high aspiration and reflection in which children can thrive and achieve. We want our students to have the confidence and knowledge to not just live, but prosper in a modern ever-changing society. We will equip them with the skills to succeed and the understanding that will enable them to make the most of the opportunities that they are given.

We are forward thinking in all we do. Our children will study a modern and innovative curriculum, our staff will have access to the very best and latest professional development that has the greatest impact on learning, and our school will be housed in outstanding facilities that are high-tech and custom built. Our goal will always be to improve on what we have done before.

As the headteacher of this vibrant, new school I am delighted to welcome you and I hope you will join us on our journey.

Mr Raheel Akhtar



History of Concordia

Concordia Academy opened in September 2016 with the express aim of providing an exceptional education for Havering children. This is a school created with and for the community. As we grow, our plans will continue to be shaped around the needs and aspirations of local families.

We started with a cohort of Reception students in September 2016 and we plan to grow year on year until we are an all-through Primary by the year 2023 with a capacity of 630 students when full. This means that Reception students will have the opportunity to benefit from continuous excellence from their first day at school through to the end of Year 6. Our three-form entry status will ensure that we are well equipped to meet the local, and increasing, demand for school places.

We are currently based on our temporary site in Hornchurch while we wait for our brand new building to be completed. We are expecting to move into our modern facility during the new academic year in 2017. It will be located on Union Road in Romford.

We are proud to be part of REAch2 Academy Trust; a charitable organisation with the aim of providing the best possible education for every student in the REAch2 family. REAch2 schools are defined by exceptional teaching experiences and shared values of learning, leadership, enjoyment, inclusion, inspiration, responsibility and integrity.
