Although I struggled initially in school, I eventually achieved top marks in Maths and the sciences and went on to graduate from one of the top engineering schools in the world on a full scholarship. I want to be able to pay it forward and help students achieve their maximum potential.
Arco Academy is a a sports specialist Independent school offering an alternative education to students referred by their schools. Our purpose is to unleash the potential we know exists in all our students and strive to empower them to be the best versions of themselves.
Many thanks to all staff at Arco Academy. They are very experienced and understanding in meeting the needs of the students by giving adequate support both morally and mentally for their future. I am very grateful.
Hope can flower in the most unlikely places. To be very honest, I did not expect to be getting awards at all. I sort of lost all hope but students and teachers at Arco have taught me to believe in myself. I am forever grateful!

I would like to say thank you all so much for everything you have done for my son and myself. You have all been amazing. Over the time he has been with you he has come out of his shell and talks to me more. I’ve seen more positive changes in the time he’s been at Arco, all thanks to your help. You are truly amazing.
Arco has been able to combine both an academic and wellbeing personal and wellbeing development programme for our students, and evidence has shown that they have made progress in both areas.
