  • Over the day, pupils will meet their form group, take part in fun enrichment activities and attend their first school assembly.
  • Pupils will be provided with a free lunch. Pupils will also be given healthy snacks at break time.
  • Pupils will need to be picked up between 3.00-3.30pm.

Dress Code

Pupils are not required to wear their school uniform. Instead, pupils are requested to wear comfortable sporty clothes and trainers as they will be taking part in a range of activities, including outdoor activities.

Purchase Your Child’s Uniform at the Induction Day

We expect our students to show their pride by wearing the academy uniform smartly at all times. This year we are the only supplier of our uniform. This means parents can only buy school uniform directly from the school.

To make it convenient for you to purchase your child’s uniform we will we will be holding a drop-in session at the end of the of the induction day, between 3 pm and 5 pm. At this session your child can try on the ARK Kings uniform before you purchase any items.

Payment for uniform can be made by cash or cheque, with a check guarantee card only. Please see the enclosed uniform supplement for uniform requirements and pricing.

Please note: we recommend purchasing the uniform at the earliest opportunity. We will gladly exchange items at a later stage if your child has a growth spurt over the summer and requires a larger size.
