It’s been a great start to the year at Ark John Keats Academy and this week we came together to celebrate the successes of the pupils over the term.

For the first time ever we had two celebration assemblies following the addition of another year group to the school. Whilst Mr Bryant led the celebration assembly with the Year 8s, taking the opportunity to reflect on the continued hard work and growing maturity within the year group, Ms Kent (Head of Year 7) had the privilege of leading the Year 7s very first celebration assembly at Ark John Keats. It was a special event for all involved, including Ms Kent. The rewards themselves truly reflected the effort and tenacity the Year 7s have shown since starting in September, however it has been the development of their character and support of each other over such a short period of time that has most impressed. It was clear all the tutors including Ms Kent could not have been more proud of them.
