Dear parents and carers,

Re:  Returning to school in September 2020

In order to ensure we are fully prepared, in accordance with the Government guidelines for returning to school for all students in September, we will be looking forward to welcoming our students back week commencing the 7th September 2020. 

Whilst we finalise our preparations and plans for September, we advise that the return may see year group bubbles given staggered return dates and times in order to ensure the health and safety of our students and staff.

We will be in touch with information regarding our return during the summer break.

Parents and carers, please view our School Reopening Risk Assessment Summary.

Note: Students must arrive at the stated arrival time. Those who are late will not be permitted to enter the site.

Ark Alexandra Academy is a new co-educational school in Hastings, that has brought together Ark William Parker Academy and Ark Helenswood Academy, while preserving and building on the legacy of both.

As a Church of England school, Ark Alexandra has strong universal Christian values that firmly inform our ethos and culture. We welcome students of all faith and none. Our vision, ethos and curriculum provide every student with the education they need, so they can go on to university or into the career of their choice.
