Message from the Principal

I am very proud to welcome you to ARK William Parker Academy, where we are committed to providing all our students with an outstanding education. As an ARK academy we share the ARK vision of creating outstanding schools for local children that deliver high achievement for all their students. All ARK schools prioritise six key principles:

  • High expectations
  • Exemplary behaviour
  • Excellent teaching
  • Depth before breadth
  • More time for learning
  • Knowing every child

We are a fully inclusive academy for boys and welcome all students and families who are committed to hard work and supporting our academy aims. I look forward to working with you over the next seven years to secure success for your son.

Mark Phillips
