Welcome

Welcome from the Executive Principal

Ark Paddington Green Primary Academy opened in September 2016. Formerly Paddington Green Primary School, the academy is part of the Ark network, and is closely linked to Ark's closest school, King Solomon Academy. Together with King Solomon Academy, we aim to offer a transformational and rigorous education for the community of the Church Street and Little Venice wards in Westminster. Our vision is that all our pupils are able to succeed academically, so that they can achieve lives of opportunity, including the real option at 18 to attend a university of their choice.

Ark Paddington Green is a special place - relationships between all members of the community are built on teamwork, nurture and care, and there is a sense of loyalty and fellowship which makes the community one which all its members value. The progress of each of our pupils is our number one priority and we are driven to make amazing things happen for each of them.

Over the months and years to come, we will complete a journey as a school, rapidly improving all aspects of the school and emulating the dramatic success of King Solomon Academy and other Ark schools, whilst keeping the special sense of team and family which is unique to Ark Paddington Green.

I am proud to be part of this journey and excited about all the successes to come.

Mr M. Haimendorf

Executive Principal, Ark Paddington Green and Principal, King Solomon Academy
