KSA Sixth Form and the ARK Network
Being Part of the Ark Network
King Solomon Academy is part of the Ark Schools network. You can find out more about Ark here.
There are currently thirty five academies in the Ark schools network. Ark's mission is to create formal and academic school sixth forms with outstanding teaching, learning and support that will ensure 100% of leavers progress either to a good university or to an aspirational career path. The majority of our sixth form places will be taken by students progressing from Key Stage 4 within its academies, but Ark also welcome applications from motivated, hardworking and well qualified students from other schools.
Sixth form students within the Ark Schools network have an unrivalled range of opportunities for enrichment, careers and personal development as a result of Ark’s excellent reputation and links. In addition to the links academies form with local higher education providers, Ark sixth form students also benefit from national network partnerships with a range of excellent universities, ensuring that students’ UCAS preparation is second to none.
At KSA we work closely with a number of Ark Sixth Forms to develop teaching and learning and expose students to wider opportunities. Students following the BTEC business pathway will attend a number of course network days at our corporate partners including Barclays, Morgan Stanley and Bloomberg. As part of our UCAS and university support process we hold a day each year with Ark Academy Wembley where we launch the UCAS process in half term 6 of Year 12. The day includes subject lectures, talks from universities on how to make a great application and a university quiz competition.
