Friday 14th February is a staff training day.

Attendance to these lessons is compulsory. Students should arrive 15 minutes before their lesson in their daily, professional attire. If students would like to remain on site during lunchtime, lunch will be provided free of charge. Students must sign in and out at reception.
Introducing our new Head Students....
We are please to introduce our new 6th form head students Brenda and Shakira...
"Similarly to many other individuals I have many dreams, one of which included to become Head Student at ARK Putney Academy which now I have achieved. Although this is a great accomplishment if I tracked back to 4 years ago, I definitely would not see myself in this position. My journey through education has involved many milestones which is why I believe my story is one that stands out as despite being in care and moving secondary schools, I have achieved 9 GCSEs and I am on track to achieving a phenomenal set of A-Level grades before I progress onwards to achieving my bigger set of dreams. I would largely say that this is all down to APA. APA is a school that places a huge value on ensuring that every student is a pillar in any community’ and it is because of their values that I am the exceptional student that I am today. This, in a nutshell, is the reason behind why I applied for the role of Head Student. I could have chosen to become a Head Student at another school however I decided to remain at APA as the teachers have offered me everything and more, now, with this role I aim to give back to them by helping this school become an ‘outstanding’ school. Along with my fellow HS Shakira, I seek to do this by integrating the year groups through social events, improving the mental health resources available to all students, academically helping students and much more."
