Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make and at Ark Kings Academy our goal is simple: We want every child to be well prepared academically and socially for university, the career of their choice and the challenges of life. This is underpinned in every aspect of school life by our values "Aspire. Expect. Achieve. Together."
In September 2017, Ark Kings became an all-through academy admitting children from Reception to Year 11 and has improved both academically and in the provision, we provide. This September we have opened a nursery for 3-year olds. This exciting opportunity has enabled us to provide the youngest children in our community a structured environment in which to begin their journey into education. Since joining the ARK Academy trust in September 2012 the school has gone from strength to strength with exam results climbing each year. In the last academic year 18/19, we have secured our best results ever.

  • 64% 9 – 4 in English and Maths (up from 58% in 2018)
  • 36% 9 – 5 in English and Maths (up from 28% in 2018)

This is a growing school serving its local community – a school that meets the needs of each of its students and has the highest expectations of every one of them to do well. We want to transform the life chances of every student who comes to this school. We focus on academic excellence and make sure that every child achieves their potential in subjects that will serve them well beyond school.

In order for pupils to be successful and happy in school, so much is dependent on the work of our teachers and support staff. To this end we focus heavily on personal and professional development and offer a supportive environment that encourages both staff and pupils to be their best.

Then there's our drive to keep you informed with what's happening at school because when we work together with you and your child we get results. We keep parents regularly informed of how their child is doing in each of their subjects, their behaviour and attitudes to learning, their punctuality and attendance. Parents commit to a home-school agreement so that they know what we expect of their child. This way every child makes progress every day - allowing them to excel academically and develop into well rounded individuals.

We will do all we can to make sure every child continually improves - and we will do all we can to make sure that we get better and better at what we do.

You are welcome to come and visit us to see for yourself the calm, purposeful atmosphere of our school; testimony to the dedication of our staff and students.
