“A great deal of work has brought about a new school that has quickly established high expectations and secured impressive progress in the short period since opening. Pupils make outstanding progress in their studies.”
We are very ambitious for all our pupils and believe that our emphasis on the study of subjects in depth through our extended day is a key feature of our success. At the end of each day we also enrich our offer with a wide variety of activities, from extra sports and specialist clubs to extended support for literacy, mathematics and science. We also spend a great deal of time ensuring that as teachers we are well prepared and continuously learning and enhancing how we teach in order to extend our students.
We're very proud this year to publish our Case Studies, which detail some of this work. You can download them from this website - http://arkacademy.org/2012-casestudies There is also a training film (along with other videos) which describes our approach to staff learning; it can been seen here: http://arkacademy.org/latestvideos
You will see our motto ‘Civitas’ everywhere around the school. We are first and foremost citizens and this is what binds us together. We want our students to grow into rounded, confident, ambitious young people who aspire to high achievement and will make a mark on the world.
Ark Academy is not for the faint-hearted. We expect a great deal of hard work from our pupils. We know nothing worthwhile was ever achieved differently. We expect high standards from everyone and believe that the simple formula of “work hard, be nice” will ensure the best future for our pupils. To this end we are “compassionately ruthless” in implementing our standards and expect that parents will wish the same for their offspring.
As the Founder Principal of Ark Academy I am conscious of the rare privilege and opportunity of opening and now expanding a brand new school. I also want to thank our ‘Founder Parents’ and pupils for the faith they have placed in our vision.
So now we welcome the new year 7 in September 2012 to add to our first and second year group of secondary students. We also welcome our fifth group of reception pupils as the primary school grows into Year 4.
I believe we are building a wonderful school that offers our pupils enormous opportunities. I look forward to working with our parents to ensure the best for their children.
