Open events for September 2016 entry
This summer our students celebrated their best set of GSCE results yet! At ARK Kings Academy we are rapidly raising standards and the progress of our students is now significantly above national average - 87% of students made expected or better than expected progress in English, and 73% in maths in 2015. We have exceptionally high expectations for all of our students which means that they make better progress than students elsewhere.
During September we will be holding a series of open sessions for parents and pupils thinking of joining ARK Kings Academy in 2016. These sessions are an opportunity for parents and pupils get to know the academy and our staff, and are designed to help parents and Year 6 students decide that ARK Kings Academy is the right choice for secondary school education.
Monday 14 September 4:00pm-8:00pm
Friday 18 September 11:15am-12:45pm
Saturday 19 September 10:00am-11:30am
We are also be offering tours of the academy by appointment throughout September and October. Please call us to arrange a convenient time on 0121 459 4451.
New school building
It is an exciting time to be joining the academy. Work has just begun on our new school building which will open early in 2017. That means that if your child joins Year 7 in September 2016 they will shortly after move into our brand new building with climate controlled classrooms which maximise the use of natural light, a three court sports hall and dance studio, and specialist facilities for teaching technology.
