Ark John Keats was founded in 2013 with one class of reception children. We are now a fully-fledged all-through school, running from nursery to year 13, with over 1,700 children. Our primary school is three-form entry and is oversubscribed, with a waiting list for every year group.

Our long-term ambition is to take children from age 3 in our nursery to age 18, and our primary school will set our children up for a lifetime of success and opportunity. We aspire for all our children to have the academic knowledge necessary to enable them to progress to university or into the career of their choice, for pupils to have a love of learning and curiosity about the world, and for them to be polite, well-mannered young people who take responsibility for their choices and drive their own destinies.
