Academy Day

Many Ark schools run a longer school day in order to provide adequate time for core subjects and enrichment opportunities. At Ark Boulton Academy we run a slightly longer school day so that our students have more time for learning and for taking part in the large number of enrichment activities that take place.

Want to see our school day in action? Get in touch to arrange a visit. 

Our school day is as below. Students must arrive in good time for line-up at 8.15am each morning. (School gates close at 8.15am, so all students must be on site before this).
