Welcome to the Ark Victoria Academy website

Welcome to Ark Victoria Academy.

Ark Victoria Academy opened on the 1st March 2018.  The school was formerly known as Perry Beeches V and we are delighted to be joining the Ark network.

Ark Victoria Academy will retain the "all through family school" ethos that we have worked so hard to establish since we opened, and which we know is valued by our families.

We chose the name Ark Victoria because nearby Small Heath Park was named Victoria Park after Queen Victoria who visited the park on 23 March 1887 where she was greeted by thousands of school children.  It also reflects the important part that Birmingham played during the Victorian industrial revolution. 

Like Perry Beeches V, Ark Victoria Academy will remain a non-selective, non-denominational and mixed all-through school.  Current pupils and staff will automatically transfer from Perry Beeches V to Ark Victoria on the 1st March 2018. 

As part of the Ark network, our school will benefit from strong links with the wider network – particularly with the other Ark schools in Birmingham.  Staff will be able to receive high quality training and support which is recognised as being among the best in the country- and our pupils will have opportunities to be able to take part in additional network-wide activities such as competitions, debates, music galas and university coaching. 

We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
