Year 7 Admissions (Sep.2021)
We are delighted to welcome all prospective Year 6 students to join our academy as part of our Year 7 cohort for September 2021.
Moving to secondary school is a huge step in a young person’s life, but at ARK Evelyn Grace Academy we firmly believe that this should not be a leap into the unknown. As parents you will want to feel confident that you are making the right choice and we firmly believe that ARK Evelyn Grace Academy offers the right path to an academic journey of success for your child.
We look forward to your child starting their journey with us, becoming cleverer and kinder every day.

Highlights from our Year 7 2020 cohort:
'My first week at school' by Lovayah, 7Nightingale
My first week at Evelyn Grace Academy has been so fun! It has been fun meeting so many teachers, especially teachers like Mr Hall (Form Tutor, PE teacher), who is one of my favourites; and Mr King (Maths Teacher), he is an expert at Maths! He made Maths enjoyable. I learnt a lot of Maths this week.
I have also enjoyed meeting and making so many new friends. My favourite part of each day is having lunch and communicating with others.
I am really looking forward to doing more lessons, learning and finding out what house I am in!
