Dear Parents, Carers and Visitors,
Ark Byron Primary Academy opened its doors in September 2015. The school is not selective nor fee paying and welcomes pupils from all backgrounds. As of September 2021, it now has a full seven year groups, ranging from Reception to Year 6 and a total of 420 pupils. At Ark Byron, we are committed to providing the best possible education and experience, whilst also expecting the highest standards, from staff, pupils and parents.
Our mission is to set the foundations and preparation for university or a career of choice, to provide pupils with real life choices and enhance their opportunities. We believe in high academic standards but learning at Ark Byron is not simply about academic achievement. We want to develop the whole child to have caring, considerate pupils with a love of learning. Please look at our news pages to glimpse some of the varied learning experiences enjoyed by Byron children. Ofsted graded Ark Byron as a "good school" (November 2018) and there is a copy of the report on this website.
Ark Byron’s values and our logo encapsulate our vision and ethos. Our motto “Courage to reach for the sky” reflects the high aspirations we have for each pupil, encouraging them to aim high in everything that they do. Pupils are encouraged to try new things, to challenge themselves and never give up. By doing so, they will excel in everything they do.
As part of the Ark Academy network, Ark Byron Primary Academy has total commitment to providing all its pupils the best possible start with their education and setting children on an exciting learning journey; enabling every child to make excellent progress and reach his or her full potential.
In 2018, we moved into our purpose-built building on the edge of Acton Park. The park provides us with an enviable location and we enjoy using this unique position to help our pupils develop an interest in, and respect for, the natural world and the environment.
We hope you enjoy looking at the website and look forward to welcoming you to Ark Byron.
