Welcome from our Principal, Ms Jessica West
I'm proud to welcome you to Ark Walworth Academy, where we seek to provide academic excellence and superb pastoral care for all in our school community. To that end, you'll find the team here at Ark Walworth are dedicated to securing the best possible progress for students, while placing our children at the heart of all decisions, and recognising their success.
The Ark Walworth community is a thriving and exciting one in the heart of London, providing unique opportunities for our students which we aim to explore both inside and outside the classroom. We are proud of the diversity of opportunity such a rich community provides us with, both in terms of academic pathways and enrichment opportunities, and we seek to maximise this for all within the Walworth Academy family of learners.
At Ark Walworth, our goal is to ensure our students go on to be successful adults, enabled to take up their place in the world, and confident in facing the challenges and opportunities that may bring. We look forward to welcoming the next generation of children who are excited and motivated by that prospect.
What's on at Ark Walworth
Year 6 Virtual Tour
The Walworth Academy Family is delighted to welcome back our Year 11 students for their results today. Students have persevered through some very challenging circumstances, to secure some fantastic and well-deserved grades. We are proud of each and every one of them, and are please to share with them this occasion, celebrating the five years they have spent as members of the Walworth Academy Family.
So far today, Walworth Academy 6th form has seen record numbers of students enrolling for our competitive range of courses. We are delighted to confirm so many of our current scholars as members of our Year 12 cohort for 2021 and look forward to welcoming in some new faces to our community now that enrolment is open for external candidates.
We'd like to take this opportunity to recognise the ongoing commitment of staff and of our families in supporting our young people over time. Coupled with the efforts of our young people, we are clear all look forward to a very bright future indeed. Well done to all!
We are delighted to congratulate our Year 13 cohort on securing some fantastic destinations in such a challenging time – Well Done to all!
Despite a taxing situation halting face-to-face learning and exams, Walworth Academy students have demonstrated resilience and wisdom in remaining focused on securing their destinations in recent days. This has yielded excellent results and students can now feel confident and optimistic about their wide-ranging futures.
Some individual success stories include Arlia Page, who secured A*A*A in her A levels, exceeding her original offer for studying History at Emmanuel College Cambridge. Jiahui Wang is going to read mathematics at the University of Southampton, having secured grades of A*AB, and Jermaine Appiah is going to the University of Bristol to study finance (a choice championed by Ms West, alumnus of Bristol herself). Our BTEC cohort have also secured some fantastic destinations with Ellen Miles taking her place at the University of Lincoln, achieving top grades of D*D*D* in her Applied Science qualification. Both Ade Ademola and Afta Abdulahi secured grades of D*D*D and are now off to study Finance at Royal Holloway and Accounting and Management at Queen Mary University, respectively.
We also note with pride a number of students going forward into healthcare services – a vocation which has been very much in the front line in recent times. We offer our congratulations to Valerie Owusu, off to study Adult Nursing at the University of Birmingham, and to Fares Agar on his Paramedic Science course at Greenwich.
We wish every one of our outgoing cohort luck in their future studies and welcome them through the Walworth Academy Family to the Ark Alumni. Well done to everyone!
