Ark primaries among the top-performing MATs

Ark primaries have placed top among the country’s multi-academy trusts, following the publication of national standardised tests (SATs) for Key Stage 2.

Across the network, 75 percent of pupils achieved the expected standard or above in reading, writing, and maths – surpassing the national average of 59 percent by 16 percentage points. A third of our primary schools ranked in the top 10% nationally for combined outcomes. 

These achievements are particularly noteworthy, considering Ark serves one of the highest proportions of disadvantaged pupils among academy trusts. 

Venessa Willms, Ark’s Director of Education, said, “We are very proud of these results. They are testament to the exemplary efforts of our pupils and staff, who are committed to providing quality education and ensuring every child reaches their full potential.”
