Everyone at Ark Ayrton is shining brightly under our new logo!


Welcome back to the start of an exciting new year at Ark Ayrton. After a community and whole school decision, we rebranded to a Lighthouse and also adopted the new value of 'shine brightly' in addition to our 'aim high, work hard and play fair' values. To aknowledge our new value, the children have all added to the collage of a Lighthouse - their piece shines individually and together as one. We are looking forward to seeing how the children shine brightly this year!

We have also launched our new Horizons Curriculum - a vibrant cross curricular approach to learning, in which all children will thrive, broaden their horizons and love to learn. For more information on our new curriculum, please see our curriculum page on the website.
