In June 2017 we came out of special measures and now our team of enthusiastic, high expectations staff are doing what it takes to rapidly improve our school and deliver the outstanding education our community needs and deserves. We are committed to ensuring teachers can focus on teaching and have the opportunity to refine and develop their practice in the classroom and develop their leadership skills – we have twice as many training days as is standard and weekly professional development for all staff.

We are a large non-selective secondary school in the London borough of Brent, with excellent transport links to central London. 

This month we moved into our long awaited brand new school building with state of the art facilities. We know that with the right people we can use these to drive the success our pupils deserve.

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 were rated a "Outstanding" overall in our most recent Ofsted report (June 2023) - you can read the full report here.
