Welcome to Ark Little Ridge Primary Academy, we are a community primary school who work very closely with Ark Blacklands Primary Academy to serve the local children of Hastings.


We are a 2 form entry school, with 60 pupils in each year group, ranging from reception through to Year 6. Our staff make a tremendous effort to get to know each pupil and provide them with the very best care.


The vision for our pupils is clear. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to succeed at university or in a career of their choice. We provide them with the skills they need for success at secondary school and beyond.


At Ark Little Ridge Primary Academy we have high expectations of all our pupils. We know this is essential if we are to realise our vision. We are dedicated to doing whatever it takes to ensure each of our pupils succeeds. To achieve their ambitious goals, our pupils and staff work hard and have high aspirations. We put English and mathematics at the heart of our primary curriculum. Skills learnt in these subjects provide the foundations for all learning. Our enrichment activities allow opportunities for our pupils to develop skills in other areas of the curriculum.


We know that your child’s education is important to you and we will do everything we can to make sure their time at Ark Little Ridge is enjoyable.


We hope this website shows what Ark Little Ridge can offer your child.
