School Description

The academy opened in September 2013, with 27 pupils starting in Reception. The first cohort now includes 57 pupils in Year 1, 60 in Reception and 138 pupils in Year 7. In September 2015, the academy will open a 50-place nursery and the primary phase will increase to three forms of entry. The academy will add new year groups each year until it enrols all year groups from nursery through to the sixth form. The academy provides full-time provision for 127 children in Reception. Children in Reception and primary attend the academy from 8.30am to 4.00pm, and pupils in the secondary phase attend from 8.30am to 4.30pm. The school serves a diverse community. The largest ethnic groups are pupils from White British heritage, other Black African heritage, Turkish heritage, Caribbean heritage, White Eastern European heritage, and White and Black African heritage. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is well below average. The proportion of pupils eligible for the additional government funding provided for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals or looked after by the local authority is high. A high proportion of pupils are known to speak English as an additional language. The academy is built on the site of two previous schools and is currently undergoing extensive refurbishment. The academy has a phased building programme; the primary phase is completed and a small section of specialist rooms is used in the secondary building. The refurbishment is expected to be completed in August 2015. The academy is sponsored by Ark (Absolute Return for Kids) and was opened because of the shortage of primary school places in the local community and the expected shortage of secondary places at secondary level in future years. All key appointments to senior positions have been made. Further appointments will be made to the senior team and other teaching and non-teaching staff as the number of pupils on roll increases. As a new academy with the first cohorts at the beginning of Key Stages 1 and 3, it is too early to report on the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in the national tests and GCSE examinations.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.

Ark John Keats Academy Reviews

Average Rating:


"> I have had a terrible experience with this school. No help or understanding about my child’s long term illness . They have been advised by an OT to give my daughter Google Classroom when she was too ill to get into school but they ignored the request twice. Now my daughter cannot do her GCSEs and I regret sending her there.
“Great pastoral Care!”
"> Ark John Keats Academy in Enfield is a school that is serious about their students' total wellbeing. High standards of education and discipline and I really must comment on their super pastoral care.
