Incoming principal praises current principal for his "remarkable job"
ARK Schools is delighted to announce the appointment of Alison Downey as the new Principal of ARK Putney Academy. Ms Downey will assume the leadership of the academy, recently rated ‘good’ by Ofsted, from September.
Ms Downey is currently Vice Principal of ARK’s Burlington Danes Academy in West London, one of the country’s most successful academies with GSCE results ranking in the top 20% of all similar schools. Consistently rated an outstanding teacher, Ms Downey has been a leading member of Burlington Danes’ management team since 2005.
“I am thrilled with my new appointment at ARK Putney. Current Principal Mark Phillips has done a remarkable job of turning around the school as demonstrated by the recent Ofsted report. I am looking forward to building on that success and working with the team to ensure ARK Putney Academy becomes a centre of excellence and attainment,” Alison Downey said.
Chair of Governors at ARK Putney Academy, Michael Clark, took part in the Principal assessment day for potential candidates said:
