Covid-19 measures

We are very aware of the difficulties the extended lockdown is causing for our families. We are concerned about the potential damage it is doing to students’ education and the possible mental health risks alongside this. We want to help now by gradually returning GCSE and A-Level students to school in a safe way.

Throughout this half term we are continuing to set virtual school activities which students should follow, along with regular feedback and pastoral contact.

We are also introducing supplementary sessions for all Year 10 and Year 12 students at school. These will help consolidate and extend what students are doing through virtual school activities. These sessions will give students a chance to ask questions and receive feedback on their work, as well as motivate them and help lift their spirits.

  • The academy is closed to all pupils until further notice
  • Year 10 and Year 12 pupils are being invited to attend supplementary sessions, on specific days, beginning 15th June (Letter)
  • The academy will operate virtual school arrangements which can be accessed here
  • We all have our part to play in helping to stop the spread of Coronavirus

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 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.
