Meet some of our university-bound students

"We're off to university"

This year at ARK Schools

“The ARK philosophy is about challenging students to believe that the impossible is possible.”

Hear from some of our staff and students about what life is like in the network. Our new short film showcases some of the challenges and successes of the last year, covering everything from fish finger lunches to life-changing GCSE results.


About us

ARK Schools is a network of high-achieving, non-selective schools and one of the country’s top-performing academy groups. We run 27 academies in London, Birmingham, Portsmouth and Hastings, educating around 14,500 pupils.

Fourteen out of the fifteen ARK academies so far inspected by Ofsted are rated good or outstanding.

Our aim is to create outstanding schools that give every pupil, regardless of their background, the opportunity to go to university or pursue the career of their choice.



Students at ARK Schools are celebrating a record set of GCSE results today.
