In just over a week’s time the deadline for choosing a secondary school place for children to start in September 2015 will have passed.

Across Birmingham, parents with children in Year 6 of primary school have been reading prospectuses, attending school open sessions and asking teachers questions to help them decide which secondary school is best for their child.

Now, parents have until Friday 31 October to complete their online application to make sure their preferences are taken into acccountwhen Birmingham City Council allocates secondary school places for next year.

At ARK Kings Academy we know how important it is that parents and students make informed decisions about their choice of secondary school. For this reason, we would like to remind parents of the support we have to offer.

Visit ARK Kings Academy

Throughout this week, we will be continuing t offer parents the option of visiting the academy and meeting our dedicated teaching staff. You can arrange a visit by calling the academy on 0121 459 4451.

We will also be continuing to run our drop-in sessions for parents, between 11am and 12noon every day this week. At these sessions you can get help with completing your online application as well as get answers to any questions you have about sending your child to ARK Kings Academy.

Finally, we are pleased to remind parents that we have listened to feedback from our parents and will be offering all new Year 7 students a FREE school uniform worth £55. Please ask a member of staff for more information about this offer.
