Academy Facilities

At ARK Kings Academy we wish to make the most of our facilities. Our aim is to maximise the benefit to the local community, to our pupils and their families. In 2014, we received a small grant from Sport England to enable this to happen.

Starting from the week commencing 3 November (the week after autumn half term), we will be making our facilities available to hire by the local community. 

Any use of our facilities must not be detrimental to our staff or pupils or to the smooth running of the Academy. We reserve the right to cancel any booking without notice, should we have cause for concern. 

Academy Facilities Available for Hire

Gymnasium (1 court)

Opening Hours during term time

Pricing Policy

We have set a competitive pricing structure taking into account the quality of provision, location and the associated maintenance and running costs of our facilities.

Our funding agreement does not permit us to subsidise lettings although we shall endeavour to maintain this competitive pricing structure.

All of the facilities should be left as they are found, and any additional cleaning needed due to careless or irresponsible use will be charged to the hirer. All breakages must be reported and paid for.

The Academy will hold adequate Employers, Public Liability and Buildings & Contents insurance cover. Hirers will be expected to provide evidence that they hold adequate Public Liability Insurance.

The Hirer shall affect Public Liability Insurance within a minimum indemnity limit of £5 million for any one occurrence to cover its legal liabilities for accidents resulting in injuries to persons, including participants in the hiring activity, and/or loss of or damage to property including the hired premises, arising out of the hiring of educational premises. Hirers will be required to produce a relevant certificate of insurance. Hirers must also ensure that any participants (e.g. Entertainers) hold current Public Liability Insurance in their own right.

The Academy will not be responsible for any injury to persons or damage to property arising out of the hiring of the premises unless such injury or damage results from the negligence or breach of statutory duty on the part of the Academy.
