Scargill Junior School... a location that enhances our learning experience

Mungo Park Road | Rainham | Essex | RM13 7PL

A location that enhances our learning experience.

Being so close to central London we are lucky to be serviced by a direct line to central London. The district line is only a short bus ride or a 15 minute walk. The district line runs directly in Central London within half an hour.

Easily accessible by road, parking is free and we are a short drive from the M25 and the A12 which makes commuting very easy. 

Situated in Havering, the borough's history stretches back to Roman times. Romford is close to our school and it's famous market dates back to 1247 when Henry III gave instructions to the Sheriff of Essex to hold a market every Wednesday.
