As part of an Outstanding all through school Ark Academy Sixth Form offers the highest quality education to allow our students to pursue the university pathway and career of their choice with confidence in a changing and challenging global community. Learning is at our core: we offer a first class education with a drive towards academic excellence and a desire to create independent learners ready to face university life. We believe in extending and enriching our students, both academically and socially, developing young community leaders with a passion for social action.

Our students will develop as role models for those who follow them, they themselves inspiring future year groups of Ark Academy Sixth Form. We work tirelessly to ensure our students are world ready, armed with the relevant skills, experiences and achievements to make them stand out from the crowd on application for university and future careers of their choice.

We will:

  • Deliver a first class learning environment based on outstanding teaching and facilities
  • Provide all students with every opportunity to extend themselves and their thinking of the world in which they live; building a portfolio that will allow them to progress into top flight universities
  • Challenge students to do better than good and accept that there is always room for improvement
  • Develop our students in young leaders and role models to act as inspiration for younger members of our community
  • Welcome, value and respect all who come to the school
  • Hold true to our 4 core values and strive to display them in all that we do






We are thrilled with both the grades attained and the progress made by our pupils in our first set of A level results and second set of AS results. It was with great pride that we said goodbye to our founder year group and saw them off to Cambridge, Bristol, Reading, Warwick, Liverpool, Sheffield, Leeds and Birmingham among others.

  • Our Year 12 & 13 exceeded nationally expected progress in with Alps score of 2 & 3 respectively. This puts us in the top 25% & 10% respectively for progress nationally.
  • At A level 21% of all results were grade A or A* and 82% of all results were grade C or above.
  • Just under half of all grades achieved in AS were A-B with 75% of all results C or above
