We are moving!

We are counting down to the move from temporary accommodation within Ark Priory Primary Academy to our own new building on the Vale:  just a few weeks left to go!  We move in the week beginning 19th February 2018 and the school will be closed whilst we move.

School day

We try hard to ensure that every minute counts during our school day.  Our day currently starts at 8.45am and ends at 3.45pm (Fridays 2.45pm).

There is an outline below of a typical school day at Ark Byron.
