Ark Elvin is an eight-form secondary school in Wembley, north-west London.

We recently moved into our new, bright and airy building, which features a new library and a dining hall opening onto a courtyard, along with modern classrooms, a 5 court sports hall and a sixth form common room and study space. Outside, staff and students benefit from a new all-weather pitch for sports like football, hockey, rugby and cricket and a multi-use games area for sports like basketball, netball and mini-tennis.

Our motto – ‘dare for greatness’ – runs through everything that we do. It reminds us that as a school community, we must uphold our core values of integrity, courage, community and mastery.

Our mission is to ensure that every pupil leaves Elvin confident, articulate, and culturally aware; able to pursue careers they are passionate about, contribute to society and live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives.

We passionately believe in our six pillars and they drive all our thinking and our school improvement at Elvin:

Strong Discipline

Calm, purpose and order are established through the consistency of expectations and explicit teaching of discipline.

High Quality Teaching

Teachers are subject experts with an excellent understanding of the intellectual journey they are taking their pupils on and have mastery in effective teaching skills.

Raising aspirations and enrichment

Pupils understand the opportunities that a school and university education will afford them in terms of careers and quality of life. Pupils develop their passions and interests through an Our extensive enrichment programme.

Character development

Pupils develop the characteristics that support their academic achievement, create thoughtful citizens and allow them to make reflective choices over their personal lives.
