Ark Victoria Academy provides pupils with a unique journey in their education through the curriculum, the wider student experience offer and the vast range of opportunities that we are able to provide as an all-through school. Whilst being a large school, we are able to retain a family feel to nurture our pupils through their schooling and ensure that they leave us with the skills and qualifications to continue their journey of life-long learning in a university or career of their choice.


It's for this reason that Ark Victoria Academy was judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted in May 2019, with a strong emphasis on expert subject knowledge from our teachers, strong teaching and leadership and a focus on excellence for our students and staff.
