Ark William Parker is an all boys’ school with a strong history in the local community and a bright future ahead as we work towards excellence.      

We are looking for an expert practitioner with a proven track record of excellent outcomes to lead our teacher development work.  We are fortunate to have a strong intake of trainees who are keen to begin their teaching careers with us and we seek to provide them with outstanding in-school support so that they rapidly develop and become strong practitioners themselves.  Staff development is of paramount importance to us and we seek to find someone who is fully committed to this – both for the staff they will work with and for themselves.  If you are interested in growing your career in a high-performing network, this is the job for you!

We regularly review our practices to ensure that teachers can concentrate on teaching and students on learning. This includes a rigorous behaviour policy where every member of the school community takes responsibility for their actions.    

Support and professional development is a priority at Ark William Parker. We have coaching and collaboration which means that your practice is constantly developed, alongside weekly training sessions that are tailored to you.  

As a senior leader at Ark William Parker 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 35 schools in 4 locations across the country.  Benefits of being part of the Ark network include: 


• A salary 2.5% higher than the main scale teacher salaries

        colleagues, held by the best minds in education
