About Ark Victoria Academy


Aim high, be brave, be kind, keep learning!


Ark Victoria Academy is a high performing school across all key stages, providing pupils with a unique journey in their education through the curriculum, personal development programme, student experience offer and the vast range of opportunities that we are able to provide as an all-through school. 73% of all grades awarded at GCSE 2023 are grade 4 and above, against a national figure of 68%. 67% of students gained a grade 4 or above for English and maths. At KS2 82% of pupils gained the expected standard in reading, writing and maths, against a national figure of 59%. 87% of our pupils achieved the expected standard in reading and 85% in maths. Our provisional P8 score of +0.55, which based on last year’s results would place us in the top 20% of all schools.


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 necessary 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.
