Welcome to

Roman Fields Academy

Roman Fields Academy is a county wide provision, in beautiful surroundings on the outskirts of Hemel Hempstead. In 2018, Roman Fields was nominated for, and subsequently won, the National Autistic Society's most prestigious award for the education sector; their 2018 Excellence award. In early 2019, we received our Ofsted report in which we were graded "Outstanding" in all areas.

In 2020 we received confirmation from the DfE that our bid to run a free school for pupils with complex needs, in Welwyn, had been successful. In April 2021, we 'academised' and the new James Marks Academy Trust was formed. The Roman Fields Academy was joined by Forest House Education Centre in September 2022, and whilst we await a construction completion date for the new purpose built James Marks Academy, special free school in September 2024; we have permission to open on a temporary basis, on our Roman Fields site, from September 2023.
