Welcome

Welcome to Ark Kings Academy

At Ark Kings Academy, our goal is simple: we want every child to be well prepared academically and socially for university or the career of their choice. We work hard to achieve this for our students, and we work hard to help our staff achieve this too.

This is a small school serving its local community – a school that meets the needs of each of its students and has the highest expectations of each and every one of them to do well. We are in the business of transforming the life chances of every student who comes to this school. And we're succeeding: this year we were named the most improved academy in the country.

We unashamedly focus on academic excellence and make sure every child achieving highly in subjects that will serve them well beyond school. For instance, we give every student at least one hour of English teaching and one hour of maths teaching every day. For those that are struggling with these key subjects, we'll give extra time so they can catch up - and keep up.

What really sets us apart is our focus on developing our staff too. Our students' successes are down to the talent and commitment of our hard-working staff. That's why we offer them a supportive environment that encourages them to be their best, coupled with a commitment to providing outstanding training and professional development. For example, we offer twice the number of training days as standard, and our training covers every part of an individual's career.

Then there's our drive to keep you informed with what's happening at school. Because when we work together with you and your child, we get better results. We keep parents regularly informed of how their child is doing in each of their subjects, their behaviour and attitudes to learning and their punctuality and attendance. Parents commit to a home-school agreement so that they know what we expect of their child. This way every child makes progress every day - allowing them to excel academically and develop into well rounded individuals.

We will do all we can to make sure every child continually improves on their best. And we will do all we can to make sure that we get better and better at what we do.
