The Brittons Academy (formerly Brittons School) is a coeducational secondary school with academy status, located in the Rainham area of the London Borough of Havering, England.[1]

The school first opened in 1952 as an experimental bilateral Technical School for pupils aged 11 to 15. Technical students were transferred to the newly opened Abbs Cross Technical High School in 1958, and Brittons was redesignated as a coeducational secondary modern school. In 1973 the school was redesignated as a comprehensive school, and by 1981 the school was operating a sixth form for pupils aged up to 18. The sixth form provision was removed in 1990 due to local authority restructuring and Brittons became an 11-16 school. It gained Specialist Technology college status in 2001, and became a Foundation School in 2009.[2]

On 1 April 2011 Brittons converted to academy status, whereas previously the school was administered by Havering London Borough Council. The school continues to coordinate with Havering London Borough Council for admissions. Today the school is in an educational partnership with the Coopers' Company and Coborn School.
