Dear parent carer

Monday 9 December – Full closure for KS3 only

I am writing to advise you that we have reluctantly decided to close KS3 all day on Monday 9 December.  This applies to years 7-9 only.  The Academy will remain open for KS4 and KS5.


We continue to have major issues with staffing, with nearly one third of teachers off sick today.  I am already aware that I have a high number of staff certified as sick for Monday, meaning that we will be unable to cover classes effectively. 


However, by having years 10-13 in school we can continue to provide these exam groups with a quality experience.


I expect all students to return to the Academy on Tuesday 10 December.


Thank you for your support.


Kind regards


Alison Downey




APA School Emails Launched!

At Ark Putney Academy we are striving to ensure our school network is a strong one.

Communication is at the heart of this - and this term we have seen the launch of Internal School emails for ALL STUDENTS!

This will help students in a variety of ways - from homework updates, news, events and will even help to improve professional skills for the future!

Through their emails, they will have access to MS Office programmes such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

All emails will be tracked, and we would love support from all parents and guardians to make sure students make the most of this NEW function.


For a 'How To' guide to accessing your emails - please go to our Student Emails page
