At Ark Evelyn Grace Academy, we believe in building a school culture where every student becomes cleverer and kinder every day.

Ark Evelyn Grace Academy is led by its Principal, Mr Tim Dainty and his Senior Leadership Team.

Our students are spread across five different year groups, each with their own Director of Learning and Form Tutors.

We believe that schools are not just a place of learning; they are a journey of self-discovery, intellectual enquiry and growth. This is true for every student and member of staff.

We believe that teaching and learning should be underpinned by outstanding pastoral care.
