We are delighted to introduce you to Ark Soane Academy, a brand new non-selective secondary academy opening in Ealing in September 2020. Ark Soane will be the latest new start school in Ark’s North London region. Ark has opened four other new schools in North London in the last ten years (King Solomon Academy, Ark Academy, Isaac Newton Academy and Ark John Keats Academy) and all have been judged outstanding by Ofsted.

We have no doubt Ark Soane will be an exceptional school from its very first day and that our founding pupils will benefit hugely from being the only year group in the first year. We believe local children should have access to a standard of education that is a match for the very best schools in the country, state or private, and this is what we will deliver. Every child has the ability to be a knowledgeable, articulate and successful individual and we will work tirelessly with our pupils to realise their potential and enable them to go on to the best universities and courses.

Ark Soane will have the highest standards for every member of the school community. First and foremost, we will have a calm and purposeful learning environment. As part of this, we will expect the best from our pupils in terms of their effort, organisation and behaviour. Our teaching staff will be subject experts who provide high quality teaching and our rigorous academic curriculum will stimulate and challenge pupils. Our new building will offer first class facilities.

At Ark Soane we are committed to adding to every child’s potential, both inside and outside the classroom. The longer school day will give every pupil extra time to support their learning and development. Our enrichment programme will offer a range of activities, allowing pupils to broaden their horizons and develop interests that will stay with them after they leave school.

Ark Soane will open in 2020 with 180 places for our founder cohort of year 7 pupils. Parents, if you share our values of high expectations, strong discipline and a rigorous academic curriculum, please join us at one of our open evenings or mornings to find out more. These will be publicised on our website from February 2019.
