Welcome from our Principal, Ms McSorley

I am delighted and proud to welcome you to Ark Victoria Academy, a family school in the heart of Small Heath. I joined our academy in 2019 and am working hard with our pupils and staff to make sure our school continues to improve. We want to provide an excellent education for each and every one of our pupils.  
As Principal, it is my responsibility to create an environment in which your child can become a confident, articulate, resilient and kind young adult. Our curriculum, enrichment programme and student experience days, help ensure our pupils learn, thrive and make progress. We are committed to preparing and supporting our pupils to go on to pursue careers they are passionate about, contributing positively to society and living happy, healthy and fulfilled lives. Our school community works hard to ensure our values of being ambitious, resilient and kind underpin our work and are upheld by us all.  

We know that all children can and will achieve success and our dedicated staff work hard to nurture, support and provide challenge, to make this a reality. We welcome and value the input of carers and parents; together, we work hard to help realise the dreams and ambitions of our children and their families.  

Please take a look around our website to find out what we can offer your child.  The best way to really understand our school is to experience it.  I would love to show you around and answer any questions you may have.  

Please contact my PA Ms Helen King: h.king@arkvictoria.org  to arrange a visit.

Many congratulations to all our students on achieving an excellent set of GCSE results this summer. This is the first set of GCSE results for Ark Victoria Academy and we are delighted to share, that despite the last two years of disruption due to the pandemic, the results are very strong.  A huge congratulations to all our Y6 pupils who achieved a fantastic set of results this year, despite all the disruption and difficulties the pandemic brought about. We are incredibly proud of all that they have achieved. These results reflect the determination, resilience, commitment and hard work our students, their families and teachers have shown.
