Open Days

In preparation of the Ark Paddington Green Academy/King Solomon Academy merge, we will be inviting families of King Solomon and Paddington Green, prospective parents and members of the local community to view both school sites. There are 3 more opportunities to do this, with the next one taking place Tuesday, 20th November at 9am. You do not have to book in advance, but we do ask that you arrive on time for a prompt start.

On the 20th, the morning will begin at King Solomon with a presentation and site tour from the Principal, Max Haimendorf. The group will then walk over to the Ark Paddington Green site, for a tour and a brief Q&A session. If you are unable to make this, you are welcome to attend any of the other dates scheduled. These are listed below:



Ark welcomes Paddington Green Primary Academy

Today we are welcoming a new school to our network. Ark Paddington Green Primary Academy in west London has opened its doors to local children aged 4-11. The school is situated between Edgware Road, Paddington railway station and picturesque Little Venice.

Executive Principal Max Haimendorf said: “This is exciting news, we’re delighted to be welcoming a new school to the Ark network. I’m looking forward to working with parents, pupils and staff at the school.”

Paddington Green Primary has an agreement with Paddington Bear Limited, and is the only school in the country to feature the famous bear on its logo.

Before joining the Ark network, the school was known as Paddington Green Primary School. In January 2016, pupils were visited by Paddington Bear author and local resident Michael Bond.

There are 35 schools in the Ark network, with hubs in London, Hastings, Birmingham and Portsmouth.
