Welcome to

The James Marks Academy Trust

Established in 2021, the Trust has the remit of supporting pupils who are academically able but have been unable to access school as a result of significant anxiety, or mental health issues. The Trust aims to build on the success of Roman Fields School – a provision in the west of Hertfordshire that has won plaudits for its work with anxious pupils, particularly those with ASC.

It is the ambition of the Trust to further expand and improve the educational provision of those with Special Educational needs across the county.
