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




The Real Inspector Hound

Ark Putney Academy is proud to announce we will be celebrating the opening of our brand new drama theatre with a performance of "The Real Inspector Hound", a play by Tom Stoppard.

The plot follows two theatre critics named Moon and Birdboot who are watching a ludicrous setup of a country house murder mystery, in the style of a whodunit. By chance, they become involved in the action causing a series of events that parallel the play they are watching.

The cast is as follows:

Moon – Jeremiah 12FMA                                          

Birdboot –JJ 12ESI                                                      

Mrs Drudge – Poppy    9COL                                     

Simon – Cameron 9MEV                                            

Cynthia –Nicolette 9KTO                                                     

Felicity Lea- 9NCO and Victoria- 9NCO                                              

Magnus – Manni  9COL                                               

Inspector Hound – Connor Davis 9MEV

Tickets cost £1 and are available to purchase from reception, by calling 020 8788 3421, or through Wisepay.
