Our Church of England School

Ark William Parker is a church school with a Christian ethos and is proud to be a part of the network of church schools in the Chichester Diocese. The school’s rich history and many traditions are based on Christian values and our church school status is very important to us. 

Our core values of faith, perseverance, respect and achievement are at the heart of student life across the Academy and each student is expected to embrace these values in their time here at Ark William Parker in the following ways:

We undertake a daily act of worship and reflection as a community and have close partnerships with local clergy, including celebrating key Christian festivals throughout the year.
Our aspiration is that our students will go on to have a transforming influence on their communities and the world.
