The Marsh Academy, formerly John Southland's Community Comprehensive School, is a secondary school in New Romney, Kent, in the United Kingdom. The school is supported by the Skinners’ Company.

Students attend from all over Romney Marsh.

From 7 September 1977 until 24 July 2015, the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway provided school trains to transport children to and from the Academy. The service was finally withdrawn due to falling usage.[2]
