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.
Christmas at Ark Putney
And what a Christmas its been...
We've had a fantastic last couple of weeks at the school celebrating Christmas. Some highlights have included the Borough Carol Concert, the APA Christmas Cracker, our staff mannequin challenge which you can check pout on youtube here, staff panto and the Key Stage 3 Disco. We thought we'd share some pictures from the last few days of term to show all the fun we've been having!
