Welcome to Ark John Archer Primary Academy

Ark John Archer Primary Academy (previously High View Primary School) is a two-form entry primary school (currently operating as one-form entry) in Clapham, South-West London. The school is named after John Archer, who was the Mayor of Battersea 100 years ago and the first black person to hold civic office in London.

Damian McBeath, Regional Director for Ark John Archer, says, "We’re delighted to welcome Ark John Archer to our network. We believe that we can build on the existing strengths of the school to ensure that every pupil receives the highest quality education.

"We’ve been working closely with existing staff and the local community to make the transition as smooth as possible, setting positive plans in place to ensure that the school continues to thrive and develop. Working together is key to everything we do and we know that the school will benefit from links with others in the Ark network too.”
