      What are we most proud about at Ark Acton Academy?

  • Our excellent 6th form programme, including our Oxbridge and Fulbright scholar successes, our 6th form having the second highest progress score in the borough and our new professional pathway programme for 6th formers wanting to secure a high-level apprenticeship at 18.
  • Our 6th form ‘super-enrichment’ programme that provides our students with access to Oxbridge support, medicine and dentistry access support. The a-list US scholar programme and the access to an apprenticeship programme. All of this means our 6th form students are well-prepared to secure the very best places.
  • 66% of our Year 13 students have secured an offer from a top-third university. Two students are in the process of securing RAF pilot training scheme places.
  • How polite and welcoming our students are and how calm and orderly the school feels.
  • Our extensive extra-curricular and sporting offer including over 50 voluntary clubs that range from lacrosse to gardening club.
  • Our excellent sports facilities including our state-of-the-art fitness suite and dance studio as well as extensive outside playing fields.
  • How inclusive and diverse our school community is.
  • Our new range of pastoral support and care to ensure every child can be successful including a school counsellor, non-teaching pastoral staff and weekly student support mornings to ensure no child is left behind.
