Applications for Reception 2021-22 places now open

Tuesday 17 November 2020


We would like to warmly welcome and introduce you to Ark Kings: a thriving all-through school in the heart of Kings Norton. Children start with us in Nursery and go right through to Year 11: no moving schools, no stressful transitions - just excellent provision and outcomes. Applications for our 2021-22 Reception intake are now open (more details below)!

Our school vision is: at Ark Kings Academy every student will make excellent progress, develop outstanding character and be successful in life, education and employment.

Our school values are: "Aspire. Expect. Achieve. Together."

These capture the essence of our school: every student is encouraged and helped to aspire to great things in their lives – both what they can do now and what they can be and will do in the future. Every student can expect to be taught well in an orderly and industrious environment and in return can expect to work hard, be respectful of others and make no excuses. Every student can achieve. We won’t accept any excuses and we won’t make any either. We will do whatever we can to help ensure each student can be successful succeeds each and every day. Together we are a small school and big family.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum where every child gets the opportunity to have at least 2 hours of PE per week as well as music, drama, dance, art and humanities. Our Primary year groups start with Nursery (aged 3-4) up to Year 6. By joining Ark Kings Primary your child/children will get an automatic place in Year 7 without any need to apply.
