We are delighteAishling Ryan, Ark Pioneer Principald to introduce you to Ark Pioneer, your brand new non-selective secondary academy in Barnet. Ark Pioneer is the latest new start school in Ark’s North London region. Ark has opened four other new schools in North London in the last ten years (King Solomon Academy, Ark Academy, Isaac Newton Academy and Ark John Keats Academy) and all have been judged outstanding by Ofsted.

We believe Ark Pioneer is an exceptional school; our founding pupils and our second year group are benefiting hugely from being part of a small secondary school, as has been shown in our other new schools. We believe local Barnet children should have access to a standard of education that is a match for the very best schools in the country, state or private, and this is what we deliver. Every child has the ability to be a knowledgeable, articulate, and successful individual and we work tirelessly with our pupils to realise their potential and enable them to go on to the best universities and courses.

Ark Pioneer has the highest standards for every member of the school community. First and foremost, we have a calm and purposeful learning environment. As part of this, we expect the best from our pupils in terms of their effort, organisation and behaviour. Our teaching staff are subject experts who provide high quality teaching and our rigorous academic curriculum stimulates and challenges pupils. Our new building offers first class facilities.

At Ark Pioneer we are committed to adding to every child’s potential, both inside and outside the classroom. The longer school day gives every pupil extra time to support their learning and development. Our enrichment programme offers a range of activities, allowing pupils to broaden their horizons and develops interests that will stay with them after they leave school.

Parents, if you share our values of high expectations, strong discipline and a rigorous academic curriculum, please join us at one of our open evenings or mornings to find out more.
