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. We warmly encourage visits to the academy, to arrange a visit please email
