A Level / BTEC Results Day

A-Level and BTEC Results Day 2018 will be published Thursday 16th August

School will open from 10am-2pm for students to pick up their results in person. 

Unfortunately we are unable to provide grades to friends or family members so transcripts will remain in school until students are able to come and collect them.

Preparation for Results Day

Students should ensure that contact details are up to date on UCAS as universities may need to contact them.Students should check their UCAS (track) account from 8am on the morning of Thursday 16th.  If they are holding conditional offers they will be able to see whether or not they have been accepted into their chosen university.

Clearing and Adjustment

Where students feel that their current offer is not the right one for them or they do not meet its conditions they can elect to go into Clearing.  Clearing places tend to fill up very quickly on results day so students should check the availability of courses in advance.  Staff will be on hand to support conversations with universities on results day.

Where students have done better than anticipated they can go through Adjustment.  This means that they can hold their firm offer while searching, through Clearing, for a more competitive course.  Again, it is essential that students research the availability of courses in advance.  Students can search for courses here: https://www.ucas.com/clearing-launch

Apprenticeships and Employment

We are on hand throughout the summer to support those students who have decided to go on to an apprenticeship or into employment.  If you would like to book an appointment with our destinations manager please email s.rout@arkputneyacademy.org

Great things are happening at Ark Putney

Ark Putney is proud to unveil its new logo, the latest step in our multi million pound transformation due for completion ready for the start of the new school year.

The new logo is based on entries from a student design competition. The competition entries overwhelmingly showed a desire to reflect the school’s long history. The elephant in the badge is a reference to the former Elliot school’s logo.

Students enjoyed the opportunity to be involved in creating the new logo, Theo Pulit in year 8 said “It’s so exciting to see elements of my design in the final logo. It feels like something I can really be proud of.”

The new logo comes as staff and pupils alike are getting ready to enjoy the school's state of the art new facilities. The £30 million renovation project has almost come to an end, the scaffolding has come down and we are eager to say goodbye to the temporary accommodation and move into our bright and spacious new classrooms.

Ark Putney is already enjoying the benefits of our new sports hall, the first part of the renovations to be completed and ready for use. The sports hall includes a state of the art dance studio, shower and locker areas and facilities for trampolining, cricket, netball, basketball, football and indoor athletics.

Everyone is looking forward to what will await them in September. Miss Downey, Principal, said: “It has been a long journey but we are really excited for the project to be completed. We will finally have an environment that we can be proud of and that will inspire students. The new facilities will provide an excellent teaching and learning environment for our whole community.”
