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:



Vision and Values

At Ark Paddington Green we want to equip our pupils with the knowledge, skills and character to be successful and happy.

Our school is defined by:

  • An inclusive, transformational culture: We believe that more than 95% of our pupils can be happy and successful at university
  • No excuses and high expectations of pupils, parents and staff: We have rigorous pupil behaviour management policies in place, as well as exceptional staff commitment
  • Maximising outcomes by creating engaging, fast paced and more time for learning
  • A curriculum which is genuinely university preparatory: our curriculum prioritises depth before breadth

The values that we celebrate in our community are called PAW values, and stand for:



Working together

Our pupils and staff display these values, and by explicitly growing our pupils's chracter through a values driven approach we believe we are nurturing children who will grow into caring, determined and passionate members of their community.
