Principal's Welcome

Dear parent/carer

I am delighted to welcome you to Ark Putney Academy, where we are committed to providing all our students with an outstanding education. The academy is at a particularly exciting phase in its development. In 2013 Ofsted rated the academy as good in every category and highlighted our students’ progress and achievement at GCSE and in sixth form. We are delighted with the £30 million renovation our school building has undergone, we now have a bright, state of the art learning environment in which our students can thrive.

As an Ark academy we share the Ark vision of creating outstanding schools for local children that deliver high achievement for all their students. We embrace the six principles used by all Ark schools and we believe that this consistent, committed approach will provide the foundations for exceptional student achievement.

We are a fully inclusive academy and welcome all students and families who are committed to hard work and supporting our academy aims. I look forward to working with you over the next seven years to secure success for your child. The best way to gain a feeling for the academy is by visiting us. We’d be delighted to meet you, show you around and tell you about our plans for the future.

Alison Downey

Principal
