Welcome from our Principal, Mark Dalton
At Ark St Alban’s Academy we have high expectations of our students, exactly as if they were our own children. We expect them to go to university, succeed there, and then lead fulfilling lives that make them happy and allow them to contribute back to the community.
We believe that all children can - and will - achieve, we do everything we can to make sure that they reach their goal. We act with integrity and discipline to challenge all members of our learning community to make the most of their God given talents, maximising their contribution to society and making the world a better place for us all.
These expectations and values are built on the twin pillars of our inclusive Christian mission and the underlying principles of the Ark Schools network. They lead to high quality teaching and learning in a structured and disciplined environment that ensures outstanding student progress across all subjects.
Our school achieves remarkable results. Not only do we have an Outstanding Ofsted report, but our GCSE results are some of the best in country. The progress our students make ranks our school within the top one percent nationwide and pass rates are 15% higher than the national average.
