Be a part of an outstanding school
"It is my aim that Ark Atwood Primary Academy will be an outstanding local school whose pupils are cheerful and successful."
- James Evelyn, Headteacher
Having had the privilege of starting a new school from scratch, we have set the highest expectations and made outstanding progress from the start. We aim to deliver outstanding teaching and ensure all pupils receive the best possible start in their education. With the school growing year on year, working here would be an excellent development opportunity for an ambitious candidate with the capacity to take on middle leadership or management responsibilities in the near future.

Make a difference where it matters the most
Ark schools are always based in the communities where we can make the biggest difference to children’s lives. We take on some of the most challenging schools in the country. Many of our schools have a history of academic under-achievement or are in areas of economic disadvantage. We have more than ten years' experience of successfully transforming schools, building outstanding new schools and improving the life chances of some of the most disadvantaged young people in the country.
As a part of our schools' network, you’ll work with colleagues from different subjects, schools and cities, and have the chance to take on network-wide responsibilities such as leading programmes or training.
Ark Network Days
Three times a year, people working in specific roles or subject areas get together to share best practice and deepen their subject knowledge with peers from across the Ark network.
Have an impact far beyond your own school
If you want to be part of the effort to advance and improve education, join Ark. From creating and working with new curricula and teaching techniques, to collaborating with other schools and partners to share what works, we’re always aiming for system change. Through Ark Ventures, we incubate, launch and scale initiatives, such as Mathematics Mastery, English Mastery, Institute for Teaching and Ambition School Leadership, that address some of the most intractable issues in education and society – in the UK and around the world.
