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. Ark Kings Academy has recently become an all-through school, meaning that or pupils begin their school journey with us– up until they leave for the career or university of their choice.
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.
Our successful candidate will:
- Deliver outstanding teaching and learning and therefore help students achieve excellent academic results.
- Provide a nurturing classroom and academy environment that helps students to develop as learners
- Plan, resource and deliver lessons and sequences of lessons to the highest standard that ensure real learning takes place and students make superior progress
