Welcome to Ark Atwood. We are a two form entry primary school offering a great education for local children in north Westminster.

Our vision is for every child at Ark Atwood to fulfil his or her potential and be set up for success when they move on to secondary school. We offer a broad and engaging curriculum that provides opportunities, through learning in school and beyond, for children to increase their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Central to our vision are our ‘Aspire’ school values which run through everything we do. Our values are:


Aspiration & Achievement We all achieve the best we can. We focus daily on doing whatever it takes to accomplish our goals.

Scholarship We are focused on excellence. Hard work and achievement are at the heart of our school.

Perseverance We believe in ourselves and never give up.

Integrity We do the right thing and choose honesty. We are our best selves.

Respect & Responsibility We treat others as we want to be treated. We look to ourselves to do what needs to be done – no excuses.

Enthusiasm We remain positive. We show our positivity. The positivity we show gives us strength.


Our dedicated staff team are committed to the success of all our children and the learning culture is strong. Our commitment to knowing every child is shared by everyone on the team and we strongly believe that children whose parents are involved in their learning do well. We therefore strongly encourage parents to be active members of our school community.

Ark Atwood is part of the Ark Schools Multi Academy Trust. Ark is a high performing network of schools committed to securing excellent outcomes for children; collaboration with other Ark schools and high quality staff development are central to the Ark approach.
