About Ark Swift Primary Academy

We believe that school is not just about reading and writing in these early stages, it's also about growing as people. Our teachers have time to get to know every child which enables a strong focus on individual learning. Our consistent behaviour management strategies allow staff to concentrate on teaching, and pupils on learning.

Our leadership team is approachable, friendly and always available to help. You will find there is a real ‘team effort’ ethos at the school, with the leadership team regularly covering classes to allow staff extra time for planning and assessment. We have fostered a supportive and collaborative infrastructure that will ensure your career progression is nurtured every step of the way. Hard work will never go unnoticed at Ark Swift as we have fostered a culture of praise amongst our staff.

Ark Swift lies at the heart of the Ed City development: a non-profit project to create an education and charity hub in White City – bringing social and educational benefits to the local community. Due for completion in 2022, Ark Swift Primary Academy will benefit from modern teaching environments, new outdoor learning spaces, improved IT, and sports and performing arts facilities.
