Founding Pioneer Pupils Meet Lord Agnew, Academies Minister

Ark Pioneer Academy were delighted to welcome Lord Agnew, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the School System and his team, to visit our school on the pupils’ first full day.

Lord Agnew met with the Principal and took a tour of Ark Pioneer’s brand new building. He met with six founding pupils to hear about their experience of starting secondary at a new school. Lord Agnew said: “It was a real pleasure spending time today at Ark Pioneer Academy to see the school’s brand new building, which is providing pupils with a modern and innovative space to learn, and to speak with year 7 students who are certainly embracing the experiences of starting secondary school”.

We look forward to welcoming him back to see our founding pupils as they progress through secondary school!
