It’s an exciting time to join Ark Academy. Our staff are striving to maintain our outstanding reputation achieved in our last Ofsted inspection. This was reaffirmed in 2018, when Ark Academy was ranked in the top 10% of schools nationally for maths attainment over 3 years. 

We are looking for a teacher to join our primary team who is committed to driving standards and ensuring every child is challenged to achieve their maximum potential. We want a teacher who has the skills and desire to develop and nurture every child in their care. They will deliver consistently good teaching and learning, in order to help all students to achieve excellent academic results.

• someone who is committed to developing their own teaching practice in a supportive team environment
• a professional who is able to work in partnership with parents and other stakeholders
• an excellent communicator who enjoys working as part of a team.

We welcome applications from NQTs as well as more experienced teachers. 

As a member of Ark Academy you will receive extensive professional development geared towards excellence. We don’t do ‘training for the sake of training.’ Weekly sessions designed by those who understand the context of the school, are ensured to cater for our teachers’ every need.  

In addition, the school provides continual support and career progression. Numerous comprehensive training programmes are available to our staff from NQTs to aspiring middle and senior leaders. 

Our successful behaviour policies treat student behaviour not as the responsibility of individual teachers, but of the entire school. This ensures as a teacher at Ark Academy, your time is never wasted dealing with discipline. Our students know what is expected of them, allowing both students and teachers to focus on learning.
