I am delighted to welcome you to Ark Dickens Academy where our priority is the wellbeing and progress of every child. Our school motto is: Learning for life, aiming for excellence.              

We believe that learning is a lifelong process that if embedded early in a child’s education leads to confidence, independence, resilience and determination. To achieve this we work hard to develop an atmosphere of trust, happiness and high aspiration, to ensure that your child feels cared for and supported on their educational journey.

Our dedicated teaching and support staff work together to create a stimulating learning environment, encouraging our pupils to become active participants in their own, unique learning journeys.

We strive to foster close relations between school, parent and child as we believe this is central to your child’s success.

I hope you find the information on this website useful. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to arrange a visit to the school.
