|ARK Putney’s Journey To Higher Standards & Results|
Buoyed by outstanding Ofsted result at sister academy
Dame Sally Coates, Executive Principal of ARK Putney Academy is delighted with the outstanding Ofsted result of their sister school Burlington Danes and believes that sharing the expertise that led to this achievement will bolster the success that ARK Putney are already having on their journey to becoming an outstanding school.
Burlington Danes Academy – once labelled one of London’s worst comprehensives – has been judged outstanding by Ofsted in all four categories in a dramatic turnaround.
In 2013 Ofsted rated ARK Putney Academy as good in every category and highlighted students’ progress and achievement at GCSE and in sixth form. Last year, ARK Putney Academy was Wandsworth's most improved school and was in the top 100 most improved schools in Britain.

The school will be refurbished as part of a major renovation project, due for completion next year.
