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.
Welcome to Ark Putney Academy, have a look at our great updated video!
Welcome to Ark Putney Academy
We’ve been celebrating a successful 2016 so far with our best GCSE results yet, that place Ark Putney above the national average and ahead of other schools in the local area. Our A-Level students have received university offers four Oxbridge offers in the last three years. These reflect just some of the school’s successes that have led Ofsted to award Ark Putney an overall 'good' rating. With state of the art new indoor facilities that opened at the begining of the last school year our new 3G AstroTurf pitches opened in September, the school is on its way to outstanding.
We have a proud history serving the local community, and in 2012 the former Elliott School became part of the Ark network. Ark’s family of 31 schools include some of the best performing academies in the UK.The ambition for Ark Putney is no different: to create an inspiring school environment, a place where teachers and pupils can achieve their absolute best, safe in the knowledge that there is room for growth and support for all their needs.
As well as giving our students an excellent academic education, we pride ourselves on developing our students outside of the classroom, giving them the skills and opportunities they need to build strong foundations for their future.
