APA Sporting Successes
Over the past academic year, Ark Putney Academy PE Department has worked to increase participation levels across all extra-curricular clubs both during and after school. Building new relationships whilst further strengthening existing relationships with surrounding schools and organisations has helped improve training and competition for Ark Putney Academy students.

With this we have also seen success so far this year with our year 7 team winning the Wandsworth School games 6 a side football tournament, Our U14 Boys and Girls Basketball team now in the Wandsworth School Games Basketball finals, Year 11 & 10 Boys Football finalists in APA 7 a side Invitation Cup, U13 Boys rugby team currently unbeaten 5 games 5 wins.
