In 2015, Ark Kings Academy was named as the most improved academy in the country, and was rated ‘Good’ in all areas by Ofsted in October 2016.  This April, we were lucky enough to be moved into our brand-new school building (home to several impressive new facilities), and this has enabled us to continue our journey towards becoming a school of excellence.  At Ark Kings Academy, our goal is simple: we want every child to be well prepared academically and socially for university or the career of their choice.

 We work hard to achieve this for our students, and we work hard to help our staff achieve this too. To support us with our continuing transformation, we are looking to recruit a Data Officer to support the collation, analysis and reporting of attendance/behaviour data to support the leadership team in effective decision making. You will maintain accurate and complete personal details for our students, ensuring that the information kept is complete, accurate and confidential.    

"We are a big family and we know that we are moving forwards and making a difference. Every day we’re opening students’ eyes to opportunities in Birmingham and beyond, students that may have otherwise been forgotten about. Our progress so far has been incredible and we know that one day we will be an outstanding school.”– Staff member at Ark Kings Academy  

We employ an open-door policy that extends to all staff and students, to encourage a collaborative working environment. Staff receive regular training sessions to nurture professional progression at every stage.  The leadership team is approachable and always on hand to provide help where needed.

At Kings, your hard work will never go unappreciated. From staff shout outs in weekly meetings to half-termly staff buffets, we ensure there is a culture of recognition and reward.   As a staff member at Ark Kings Academy, you will be part of Ark, an international charity and one of the UK's most successful multi-academy trusts, with a network of 36 schools in 4 locations across the country.
