Our Sixth Form was recently graded as ‘Outstanding’ in our latest Ofsted inspection in December 2023, you can read the report here.

About our school:

King Solomon Academy is a genuine all-through school, with our pupils staying with us from nursery to sixth form across two sites, ten minutes-walk apart. Because of this, we have a unique opportunity to have a long term and dramatic impact on our pupils’ lives. This all starts in our primary school, where our pupils develop, and grow a love of learning.

 

We have a strong track-record as a school in making a significant impact on our pupils’ lives. We adopt a mastery approach in primary, meaning that our pupils have more time and explicit teaching of the skills and concepts that underpin long term success in academics, enriched by a varied and cultural capital enhancing curriculum which inspires and engages our pupils. Our specialist teaching model allows pupils to benefit from expert teaching in PE, music, art, humanities and science and means all staff have time to plan each subject properly.

 

In September 2019 we merged with Ark Paddington Green Academy and combined to form one all-through King Solomon Academy with Nursery-Year 4 on our Younger Years Site (Crompton Street) and Year 5 - Year 13 on the Older Years Site (Penfold Street). In May 2021, we opened a purpose-built nursery for 2-4 year olds. Our Younger Years Site has generous outdoor space, including a beautiful global food garden and a woodland garden where we run Forest School in EYFS and KS1. UKS2 pupils benefit from all the resources of sharing a site with secondary: a huge MUGA, basketball courts, science labs, specialist music equipment and so on.

 

Benefits of working for King Solomon Academy:

 

We believe in aiming high, working together, being kind and leading the way. Through weekly individual coaching, year group intellectual preparation time and whole school PD, we invest in your growth and development as a teacher to ensure you can excel in creating the best possible climate for learning for our pupils to thrive in.

Through our approach to professional development we can promise a successful candidate a positive and rewarding journey of growth. Through shared weekly and long-term planning, a large number of training days and access to the resources and opportunities in the Ark network, we are able to support our teachers to thrive.
