Tracking Arts Learning and Engagement

Ark Helenswood is recognised nationally as a school that is at the forefront of arts education. At a crucial time for arts learning in the UK, we continue to recognise the arts as a vital part of our students’ learning and development.

We have been chosen to take part in a major national scheme which will track the effectiveness of arts education and the students’ learning and engagement over a three year period. The programme involves a partnership with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Tate modern and Nottingham University and we have been chosen to take part as a recognition of the high quality arts work that we deliver.

The most recent blog from our first TALE assessor in the school can be read at PDF iconTALE Blog.

Welcome

Dear Parent/Carer

Ark Helenswood Academy is an 11-18 comprehensive school for girls, situated in Hastings, East Sussex. From 16-18 we share a sixth form with Ark William Parker Academy, ensuring the high academic standards attained by the girls can continue to flourish onwards to University or the career of their choice.

We believe that every Ark Helenswood student has the potential to succeed. Our broad and relevant curriculum combined with inspirational teaching means students leave well educated, confident and ambitious, with an excellent understanding of the world they live in.

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to join our academy.
