Ark Kings is an all-through school for children aged 3 to 16, located in the heart of the Three-Estates in Kings Norton. We are proud to serve our local community.
I was delighted to be appointed as Executive Principal of the all-through school in January 2022 after 3 and a half years leading the primary phase.
Our most recent Ofsted inspection, which took place just after my appointment, was critical. Yet I welcomed it, as it highlighted issues we had already identified and were acting on. We are now on a rapid path of improvement which will see Kings, once again, recognised as a good and high performing school.
My mission is simple: to create a school in which every child thrives, academically and socially. A school which raises aspirations and enables every child to succeed. A school which provides each child with the skills that they need to get the best jobs and attend the top universities.
We offer an exciting and aspirational all-through curriculum which is carefully planned to ensure that our students develop and grow their knowledge throughout their whole school career. This is supported by a wide range of enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities – extending our curriculum well beyond the classroom.
We are also proud to be part of Ark - a leading education charity and one of the country’s top-performing academy operators, with a shared mission to transform lives through education.
Since becoming Executive Principal I have recruited a new, all-through, leadership team. We are incredibly excited about the future of our school and would be delighted to show you round. Please get in touch to arrange a visit.
