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.
