Ark Evelyn Grace Academy is an 11-16 mixed secondary school, located at the heart of the London Borough of Lambeth. We are a community school, with high aspirations, working with and for our families to empower our students to be the voice of their future.
Through providing a nurturing environment, a high-quality education and a wide range of experiences and opportunities, we enable all our young people to have choices over the direction of their lives. It is my role as Principal to ensure that all students, attending Ark Evelyn Grace Academy, can be heard, be seen and be their best, making significant progress in school and securing high quality destinations so that they reach their full potential.
Our mission statement is based on the belief each young person is different and difference should be embraced. It is based on the belief each young person has a unique contribution to make and should be given a voice. Through finding their voice, young people can lead empowered lives where they have choice, agency and influence. We are focused on the future as we want our young people, to be the face of it.
Supporting our mission is our Culture Compass which sets out the values that drive the work that we do creating a shared sense of purpose.
There is no limit, with hard work, optimism and perseverance, to what our young people can achieve and it is a privilege to be Principal of our wonderful school community. I look forward to welcoming you to it.

Our mission statement is to empower our students to be the voice of their future. We will equip students with the knowledge, skills and confidence to have choice, agency and influence over their lives. This is done by providing students with:
- A nurturing environment.
- A high-quality education.

This enables students to find their own voice and make informed decisions about their future.
