Mark Hall Academy (formerly Mark Hall School) is a coeducational secondary school with academy status, located in Harlow, Essex, England.

In September 2013 the school converted to an Academy with Corinne Franceschi as its first Principal and Allan Osborne as Associate Principal.

Academic performance and Ofsted[edit]

In 2012, 25% of all pupils attained five GCSEs at grades A* to C including English and Maths. This is a decrease of 18 percentage points since 2011. The school was subsequently put into special measures by Ofsted[1]. In 2013 this figure was at 27% and, after the school became an academy, improved to 38% in 2014 and 46% in 2015.

Ofsted visited the Academy in May 2016 and awarded the 'Good' grade with outstanding behaviour. The leadership of the Principal was described as inspirational[2]. The Academy's 2016 GCSE results showed a Progress 8 score of -0.08, which is in line with the national average. 51% of pupils earned grades A* to C in GCSE English and Maths.[3]
