Welcome from Head of School Mrs Bennett-Acres

Welcome to Ark Ayrton Primary Academy!

We are a two form entry primary school and nursery, situated in the heart of Portsmouth, close to the sea.

We are named after Hertha Ayrton, a British female engineer, mathematician, physicist and inventor, born in Portsea. The arc lamp, providing street lighting, was among her many inventions and accomplishments.

Our childen are wonderful. To help them be the best that they can be, to ensure they flourish at primary school, to ensure they have the attitudes, skills, knowledge and understanding to prepare them for secondary school, university or the career of their choice in later life - it all starts right here! Read More >>
