Ark Castledown Primary Academy has been named one of the most improved schools in the country. The School is celebrating this week after being in the top 1% of improved schools.
Their year 6 results increased by 46% in the last year, in addition to reaching above the national average in all areas including early years.
The Art Academy Trust say both Ark Blacklands and Ark Little Academy are also continuing to remain significantly above national outcomes in all areas.
All three schools remain the highest performing primary schools in Hastings and are in the top 10% for students making outstanding progress in reading, writing and maths.
Lorraine Clarke, executive principal of the three schools said: “We are delighted that our pupils have achieved so much success”.
The Schools have been awarded the Gold East Sussex Quality Mark for supporting students with special education needs.
