Ark Victoria Academy is a non-selective, non-denominational and mixed all-through school located in Birmingham.
We are part of the Ark Academy, a network of 38 schools located in the United Kingdom. Ark is an international charity, transforming lives through education. Its ethos is to give every young person, regardless of their background, a great education and real choices in life. The Academy has six core principles that we try to abide by: high expectations, exemplary behaviour, excellent teaching, depth before breadth, more time for learning, and knowing every child.
We would like to give your year pupils an exciting opportunity to attend a free educational opportunity at Ballyclare High School. We have been designated as one of the first Digital SchoolHouse hubs in Northern Ireland. This effectively means we have been designated financial support to offer our local feeder primary schools ICT skills set by the Digital Schoolhouse programme. These tie in directly with the Northern Ireland KS2 curriculum of using ICT ie ”Pupils should be enabled to develop Using ICT skills by engaging in meaningful and purposeful activities, set in a range of contexts.
Bedales was founded to be different from the schools of its time. Where others imposed conformity, Bedales nurtured individuality, initiative and an enquiring mind.
Campion School already has strong links with local primary schools. Through our primary liaison program year 5 and year 6 students have experienced art and science activities, now with the support of Digital School House we can extend this to computing activities to prepare students for the computing curriculum at key stage 3.
