Dan also has the accolade of being the first student that has beaten Mr Richards at chess!

Mustafa was thrilled by his grades he will now be attending a local college to study a range of science A Levels. A career in medicine is now a distinct possibility for Mustafa – an aspiration that he did not think achievable at the start of his time at Ark Kings. Mustafa’s resilience in the last five years has been exceptional and despite the challenges his family have faced he has maintained a strong study ethic hoping also to inspire his siblings to be successful at school as well.

Sophie is an embodiment of the new Ark Kings academy virtues Wisdom, Resilence and Kindness. As the new Principal at Ark Kings and when asking about Sophie every member of the community has given the same responses; commenting on how hard Sophie works whilst also being supportive of other students at the academy.

Their attainment speaks volumes of their resilience and strength of character. We are all extremely proud of how they have performed in their examinations – they are certainly role models for our future cohorts as the academy looks to the future with optimism and positivity.
