Welcome to Ark Swift Primary Academy

Ark Swift, at the heart of White City, is a primary school on a journey to excellence. We inspire every child to dream, believe and achieve, inside of the classroom and beyond.

This is a really exciting time for the school, we recently appointed Christopher Greenhall as our new Headteacher. Mr Greenhall brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to Ark Swift and his vision is to encourage every child to ‘dream big’.

Since joining the Ark network, we have had lots of successes – including an 11% increase in the number of children getting good key stage 2 results, and our pupils are making better progress than ever in reading, writing and maths.

As well as excellence in the classroom, we are dedicated to developing our students outside of the classroom, giving them opportunities from playing the steel pans to visiting universities, encouraging them to try new things, to find their passions and to dare to dream big.

We are proud that Ark Swift is a school where children are excited to come to school to learn and play, where they are inspired and nurtured, and known by every member of staff. We provide a safe place where staff and pupils work together to achieve.
