“The ARK Schools music programme is built on the belief that every child can be a musician.”
Each year we hold an annual celebration of the work our students have done. "The ARK Schools Music Gala" is held at the Barbican, a world-famous venue that gives our children a moment in the spotlight.
In 2014, 750 students from 27 schools participated. Here are some of the highlights.
ARK Schools is a network of high-achieving, non-selective schools and one of the country’s top-performing academy groups. We run 31 academies in London, Birmingham, Portsmouth and Hastings, educating around 17,400 pupils.
88% of our schools which have been inspected by Ofsted are rated as good or outstanding – compared to a national average of 80%.
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.
