Aiming for Excellence

Where high aspirations and high achievements meet


Ark Walworth Academy is a local school for 11-18 year olds with an unshakeable belief in the immense potential of all pupils. The Academy focusses relentlessly on high aspirations and high achievement to guarantee that every student has the opportunity to succeed.

Walworth’s ethos includes belief in the power of praise alongside high expectations of everyone in the academy. The staff are determined that every child, after a seven-year education at Ark Walworth Academy, should have the skills and qualifications to go to university or to follow a career of their choice.

“students mature into confident young adults

Ofsted said of Walworth Academy, ‘The quality of care for students’ health and well-being is second to none.’ They added, ‘Students behave well and all of them get on well together… students mature into confident young adults.’

With a fast improving Sixth Form, Ark Walworth Academy provides an excellent all-through 11-18 education. Last year the Sixth Form ranked in the top 25% nationally for A-level and BTEC performance. One hundred percent (100%) of students received a place at the University of their choice with 35% now attending Russell Group universities. As Ofsted further said, ‘Subject specialists are delivering Sixth Form lessons and learning is always good and much outstanding… Sixth formers are happy to be at the academy, appreciating being in an environment where they are confident they will flourish.’

In the autumn this year parents and students have the opportunity to see Ark Walworth Academy at work and get a real feel for the vibrant, exciting learning experiences. All visitors will have a tour of the Academy, see a range of lessons and meet key members of staff, including the Head of Year 7. Visits include a talk from the inspirational Principal Ms Yvonne Powell OBE.
