Pupils from ARK Rose Primary Academy linking arms

January is a time when many of us think about the year ahead and make resolutions to try new things or make changes in our life. If your child is due to start primary school this coming September, why not make it your resolution to send them to the most improved primary school in Birmingham?

Record Results

Primary league tables released last month show that Ark Rose Primary Academy in Kings Norton is the most improved primary school in Birmingham, and 8th best in the country, based on 2014 Key Stage 2 results.  The league table is based on the 256 Birmingham primary schools which have results for 2013 and 2014.

Exam results at Ark Rose Primary Academy leapt from 14 to 70% in 2014 with 100% of pupils achieving Level 4 Reading.

Headteacher Penelope Webb said:

“I am delighted to see that Ark Rose Primary Academy is the most improved primary school in Birmingham which is testament to the hard work of the whole school community. We are making rapid progress at Ark Rose but we are not complacent: there is much more work to be done."
