About Ark

About Ark

Ark is an international education charity whose purpose is to transform children's lives. Our non-selective schools educate children from poor communities with a history of educational underachievement. Regardless of their background or prior attainment, we want our students to go on to university or a career of their choice. We have high expectations and know that destiny should not be determined at birth.

The Ark network is growing: we operate 34 academies across London, Birmingham, Portsmouth and Hastings. At this size, we will be able to achieve our vision of creating a sustainable network of outstanding schools succeeding in closing the achievement gap.

Why work for us?

Working in an Ark school gives you the opportunity to be part of this change and to learn from and collaborate with some of the very best colleagues and leaders in education today.

At Ark we are united by the same core purpose and six pillars, but each of our schools has its own unique ethos and character, led by the principal and school community.

We will invest heavily in your development and make sure that you are always provided with great opportunities to learn new skills and progress. Ark recognises great work; we support our staff and celebrate success.
