Welcome from Head of School
I am delighted to welcome you to Ark Tindal Academy. We are a primary school and nursery serving pupils from our local community in Birmingham.
Our vision at Ark Tindal is to provide an exceptional education that inspires all children to flourish into confident, successful and well-rounded individuals.
From starting nursery full of dreams, to leaving year 6 full of ambition, our curriculum prepares pupils for a life beyond the one that they know. Our pupils leave us as fluent readers and responsible citizens; they are conscious of their own impact upon the world and others whilst holding a relentless curiosity about the world around them.
Miss Francis, Head of School, Ark Tindal Academy
We have dreams and aspirations for the future and are determined to achieve them.
We never give up, even when we find it difficult. We push ourselves to be our best.
We treat others as we want to be treated. We always choose honesty.
It is so important for children to learn the fundamental skills and knowledge early. We make sure our student’s do not fall behind in their early years. At Ark Tindal, we take learning seriously and our results back this up.
In our last set of results, 77% of our students reached the expected standard in English and Maths – much higher than the Birmingham and national average. Our Year 6 students received results that place Ark Tindal in the top 3% of schools in the whole country.

Students from Ark schools are 3 times more likely to go to a top tier University
We are part of the Ark network of 38 high-performing schools, including nearby Ark St Alban’s Academy - one of the city’s best secondary schools and sixth form centres.Ark’s common vision is to enable every child to go to University or into their career of choice. Last summer, local Ark St Alban’s Academy student Anisa Ahmed won a place at Birmingham University to study pharmacy after receiving two A grades and a B in her A Levels this summer. She is the first member of her family to go to university. Ark’s Realising Opportunities programme enabled her to visit a number of high-profile universities to help her understand their admissions process and make her choice of application. Anisa decided to stay nearby, hoping her studies will help her to be able to give back to the local communities she has grown up in.
We’re proud to offer a fantastic music programme, where our pupils play the ukelele, sing together and have the chance to learn how to play the violin from our classically-trained violin teacher.
As part of the Ark network, every student in Year 3 and above receives a free Chromebook and has access to a broad range of extra-curricular materials to allow learning to continue at home.
From cricket to reading, art to basketball, tennis to cooking, we offer a range of free after-school activities for pupils at the school to help them develop their skills and interests outside of the normal school day.
A teacher affects a pupil's achievement more than any other factor. We invest in recruiting and training the very best teachers and support staff. As part of Ark Schools, they access sector-leading training and expertise from across the network.
