The school day will finish at 1:10pm after period 6.  Students will be encouraged to leave the site immediately, although there will be limited food available.  Free school meals allowances will be available from break time.

Principal's Welcome

Dear parent/carer

I’m proud to welcome you to Ark Putney Academy, a non-selective school for children between 11 and 18. 

In April 2017 we received a section 8 Ofsted visit which reinforced our grade as ‘Good’ and we have been building on this success with constantly improving exam results at both A Level and GCSE. Our students make outstanding progress at both Key Stage 3 and 4, we are in the top 20% nationally. This August 71% of our Year 11 students achieved 5 GCSEs 9-4 including English and Maths. Our Sixth Form has just had its best ever set of Key Stage 5 results, one third of A Level entries were graded at A* or A, and the school came within the top 10% nationally for student progress.

We are proud of our newly refurbished listed building, with new indoor and outdoor sports facilities, a stunning art studio, and bright, comfortable teaching spaces. This refurbishment has made our school a truly exceptional place for children to learn.

We welcome all students who are ready to work hard and get involved in all aspects of school life. I look forward to working with you and your child to secure their future success.
