Drapers' Academy is a secondary school in Harold Hill near Romford, Essex. It is the first academy in the London Borough of Havering.

It was established in September 2010 under the joint sponsorship of the Drapers' Company and Queen Mary, University of London.[1] It is located on the site of the former King's Wood School.[2] Its future had been thrown into doubt on 7 July by the government's announcement of cuts to the national school building programme, but after reconsideration was given approval on 6 August.[3]

It will specialise in teaching science and mathematics. A sixth form will be created once building work is finished.

The School's first principal is Matthew Slater.
