Our relationship with parents is central to the success of our students, and the academy as a whole. We welcome opportunities to work in partnership with you and your family, so that your child gets the most out of their time at Ark Boulton Academy.

Parent Clinic

Every Friday morning from 9.00am to 10.30am we hold a 'Parent Clinic' - a drop-in session for our parents, where they can meet with the Principal and other members of the academy’s Strategic Leadership Team in an informal environment to ask questions, raise concerns, and discuss matters of interest.

Please note: These sessions are currently on hold due to Covid-19 safety measures.

Parent Sessions

We have organised a range of workshops and parental drop-in sessions for networking, support and offering practical advice, to build relationships between the parent community and Ark Boulton Academy.

Some of the sessions will be based on the following topics:
