Re-opening safely

It has been a great first week and we have been delighted to welcome our students back to Ark Acton. We have spent the first week focussing on all of our control measures in order that we can maintain a calm and safe school for everyone. We have been really impressed with how well all students have adapted to our new routines and a particular highlight has been seeing how professional our Year 11 students have been as they get straight down to the hard work of securing some great exam results this summer.

Welcome from our Principal, Mr O. Knight

I am delighted to welcome you to Ark Acton Academy. 

It is my role as Principal to create an environment where it’s safe to be happy and where everyone strives for success. Our mission is to create a school of the highest standard that achieves this through recruiting and training excellent teachers and support staff, and by developing a pastoral system that ensures no child is left behind.  We know that getting great exam results is only half of a good education: we are determined to deliver as many opportunities as we can for every child to flourish outside the classroom. 

As part of Ark Schools, we have access to world class staff training and development, as well as expertise from across the network. Being part of a family of schools ensures that we can keep learning and evaluating our impact to ensure that every child who comes to Ark Acton leaves as a well-rounded and polite individual with the drive and resources to lead a happy and successful life.
