We are a community at Ark Kings Academy and welcome our families to engage in lots of the learning experiences of our children. We value the support of our parents and carers in supporting their children with their home learning and love to welcome you into school to see first-hand your child’s successes. These range from academic success in the classroom to captivating performances. We aspire for our children to develop into well-rounded global citizens. As such, our School Council this year will be organising a range of charity fundraising events.
