School Closure

The Primary School will be closed to pupils on Thursday 12th December 2019 due to a general election.

The Secondary School will remain open as normal.


I am delighted to take up the role of Primary Headteacher at Ark Kings Primary. I was previously the Headteacher at Ark Victoria in Small Heath and prior to this taught across schools in the West Midlands over the last 26 years.

Our goal at Primary is to ensure that every child is well prepared academically and socially for the next phase in their education journey, ultimately giving them the skills and qualifications needed to go to university or on to the career of their choice.

Our school values are: 'Aspire. Expect. Achieve. Together. These values permeate all we do in school with pupils, parents, staff and the wider community. Our school is a place of purposeful learning with a broad and balanced curriculum where we ensure each child has meaningful enrichment opportunities as well as prioritising learning on Literacy and Numeracy skills.

As part of the Ark network, our school benefits from strong links with the wider network – particularly with the other Ark schools in Birmingham. Staff are able to receive high quality training and support which is recognised as being among the best in the country- and our pupils will have opportunities to be able to take part in additional network-wide activities.

I am excited for the future for Ark Kings Primary and look forward to working with families and the children. If you would like to tour the school, then please phone the Primary school office on 0121 458 5380.
