Hello and welcome to Ark Franklin Primary Academy. We are a 3-form entry school committed to serving our diverse population here in Kensal Rise. Ark Franklin is proudly part of the Ark network of schools and prides itself on having the highest possible expectations for every single child.

Our name honours Rosalind Franklin. Born locally in 1920, she overcame adversity to play a key role in the discovery of the double helix structure of DNA. Our DNA walkways running adjacent to the key stage one playground leading to our garden, and in our front entrance, commemorate her outstanding achievement.  

The mission for our school is clear and shared by all:

To provide every pupil – regardless of the barriers they face - with a complete education of the very highest standard that ensures that they can have the opportunity to go on to university or pursue the career of their choice, as well as live fulfilling and happy lives.
