The results are in: great progress in a challenging year


Our primary results were a particular highlight, with Ark’s KS2 performance surpassing the national average by 16 percentage points. Across the network, 75 percent of pupils achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and maths, compared to 59 percent nationally. While there has sadly been no improvement in the national figures compared to 2022, our schools have built on the success of last year and raised outcomes by a further two percentage points.


Secondary statistics 2023

In line with the anticipated national trend, we saw a deflation against last year’s secondary results. Against this backdrop, the steady increase in our network average for KS4 and KS5 against pre-Covid benchmarks is encouraging.

There is always more to do but this positive progress means we are in a strong position to make further improvements next year.
