Our specialisms

Maths and Music

All ARK schools specialise in mathematics. High standards of numeracy are important in every walk of life, so we support and coach students to ensure that all can become confident mathematicians, at ease with both its theoretical and practical applications.

ARK Schools runs a network-wide music programme to support teachers and music departments in building a culture of participation, celebration and success in music-making. At Isaac Newton Academy students study music for two hours per week and every child is given a musical instrument at the start of Year 7 so that he/she can learn to play and perform as part of a class Big Band. Students are encouraged to join the choirs and ensembles that run as part of the extra-curricular programme.
