Later Starting Time for Years 8, 9, 10 and 11 on Thursday 4th September

ARK Kings Academy students modelling our school uniform expectations

Thursday 4th September marks the start of the academic year here at ARK Kings Academy.

To ensure our new Year 7s get off to the best possible start to their academic career we have arranged for older students (Years 8, 9, 10 and 11) to start at the later time of 11 am. Year 7s students should arrive at the standard time for line-up at 8.25 am. This will give our newest students time to settle in before older students arrive. 

Parents will receive a text message to remind them of the staggered starting times so they are clear what time their child should arrive at school.

The later start time only applies to Thursday 4th September. All students will be expected on-site for line-up at 8.25 am from Friday 5th September onwards.

If you have any questions about arrangements for starting school, or if you would like to speak to us about anything else, please just call or email us on:
