We are delighted to introduce you to Ark John Keats Academy. The academy is a 3 to 18 all-through school in Enfield, with a mixed comprehensive intake. We opened our doors to our first Reception classes in September 2013 and our first cohort of year 7 pupils joined us in September 2014. We currently have over 1700 pupils on roll from Nursery to Year 13. The academy was graded Outstanding in all areas in our Ofsted inspection of April 2015.
Ark John Keats is a very proud member of the successful Ark network of schools. Our curriculum is academic, planned to prepare pupils for the best universities by emphasising mastery of knowledge and skills. Our teaching staff are experts in their subject areas and all staff at the academy share a commitment to upholding the highest expectations. We have created an academy that is renowned for its calm, orderly and purposeful environment and where pupils behave maturely and respectfully.
We have developed a character programme to support the development of our pupils, and we ensure pupils develop their wider interests and passions by allowing our pupils access to a wide range of enrichment activities, from chess and coding to football and political art. We support pupils in raising their aspirations by helping them understand the structure, importance and value of school. We inspire their thinking about their futures through university and workplace visits and through our external speaker programme, where visitors speak to pupils about their career choices and educational experiences. We are also committed to developing our staff and we ensure they master all aspects of their work and are brilliantly prepared for the next stage of their careers. The academy has first class facilities having undergone an £18 million rebuilding and refurbishment programme that was completed in December 2015.
We are very excited by what we have achieved so far and new staff and pupils will be joining a school with a wonderful ethos, where local children are provided with a first class education. We are intent on developing a school that will match the very best in both the state and private sectors and is a source of pride for the people of north east Enfield.
We look forward to keeping you regularly updated on our development in the months and years ahead. We warmly encourage visits to the academy, to arrange a visit please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
