Ark Brunel Primary Academy is a vibrant school in diverse North Kensington. We are committed to giving our children the very best start in life and encourage them to 'choose brilliance.' Our values of honesty, enthusiasm, ambition, resilience and talent are at the heart of our work and we integrate the explicit teaching of these values into our curriculum. 

Specialist Resource Base for Speech, Language and Communication Needs

Ark Brunel Speech and Language resource base provides children aged 4-11 years who have speech, language and communication needs the opportunity of accessing the curriculum and social opportunities offered by a mainstream school with the support of teachers and teaching assistants who are specialists in language development and speech and language therapists.  The resource base provides an environment which enables small group learning, direct intervention alongside and/or in addition to regular classroom learning.
