Ark Little Ridge is in the top 10% of schools nationally for Year 1 phonics results!  This is a tremendous achievement for our staff and pupils.

Pupils at Ark Castledown Primary Academy are also celebrating as they learned that they are in the top 1% of the most improved schools in the country - increasing its Year 6 results by an impressive 46%.  

Ark Blacklands are also sharing success with their pupils as Blacklands is in the top 10% of all schools nationally for pupils making outstanding progress in reading, writing and maths.

All three schools have been awarded the Gold East Sussex Quality Mark for Inclusion due to their excellent track record of supporting pupils with special educational needs.

I am sure you will join me in congratulating all three schools on their achievements.
