Welcome from our Principal

Welcome to Ark Blacklands Primary Academy. We are a community primary school which works very closely with Ark Little Ridge and Ark Castledown Primary Academy to serve the local children of Hastings.

At Ark Blacklands we are extremely proud of the fact that Ofsted has graded us as outstanding in all areas. This means that by sending your child to our school, you will know that they are receiving the very best education, in a vibrant and nurturing setting. 
We put English and mathematics at the heart of our primary curriculum. Skills learnt in these subjects provide the foundations for all learning. Our enrichment activities allow opportunities for our pupils to develop skills in other areas of the curriculum.
