Early closures for open evening on Monday 23rd September

9 September 2019

Dear parents/carers

Early closures for open evening on Monday 23rd September

On Monday 23 September we will be holding our Open Evening event.  To give staff an opportunity to prepare and get displays ready, we will be closing the school early on Friday 20 and Monday 23 September.

The school day will finish at 12.30pm on both days. 

Students will be encouraged to leave the site immediately, although there will be a full lunch offer available on both days.  Free school meals allowances will be available.

If your child has been selected to help at the Open Evening on Monday 23 September please ensure you have completed and returned the permission slip to the relevant department.  The evening will finish at 8.00pm.

Finally, all students now leave from Pullman Gardens as the exit is larger.  To respect local residents, if you are collecting students by car please arrange to meet them away from Pullman Gardens and Hayward Gardens as the roads are very narrow and becoming easily congested.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.

With best wishes

Year 11 Prom

After a very tense few weeks taking their GCSE's exams (a feat which involved early morning revision sessions, booster session after school and across the holidays), our Year 11's were finally free to get let their hair down and celebrate at Prom 2018. 

We kicked things off with an award ceremony in our Drama Theatre - celebrating all the year's achivements and the individuals that made it so special. 

We also heard from tutors - who recalled memories from Year 7 and emotions surrounding watching their tutees grow into fantastic young adults.

A highlight of the evening was from showman Dirie Hirsie who had some HILARIOUR yet wise words reflecting on his time at Ark Putney Academy.

For those coming back to our 6th Form in September we are so excited to start the next chapter, and for those on to pastures new - we truly wish you the best of luck.

The message across the Year group however is the same; that we hope you continue to unlock your potential and we cannot wait to see what you achieve!
