Welcome from our Head of School

IHead of School Charlotte Phillip am delighted to welcome you to Ark Castledown Primary Academy.

On 18 September 2017 Ark Castledown Primary Academy opened its doors to pupils – proud to serve the local children of Hastings. The school is part of the Ark network and is closely linked to Ark Blacklands and Ark Little Ridge. 

We are a school dedicated to providing a safe and stimulating learning environment for your children, enabling them to grow and flourish.

These key, lifelong skills are then enriched and developed through a creative and varied curriculum, both inside and outside the classroom.
