Ark Academy is an all-through school in a state-of-the-art building in Wembley, recently rated as one of the top 100 non-selective state schools for value- added KS2-4 in England.  The school opened in 2008 and has grown year on year with each new intake of students and our first cohort of sixth formers started this year.

It’s an exciting time to join us: our staff are striving to create and maintain our outstanding reputation, and our school is growing year on year. We offer our staff numerous opportunities to advance and learn, including whole school training sessions once a week – led by a member of our SLT and middle leaders and support for teachers seeking their NPQML or in taking part in the “good to outstanding” programme that we run.  

When you join us, you’ll also spend more of your time teaching, and less time dealing with behaviour problems. We’re well known for the success of our behaviour policies, which treat student behaviour not as the responsibility of individual teachers, but of the entire school. Students know what is expected of them, and when there is an issue, we have an on-call rota of SLT members to help out.

We are now seeking to appoint an English Teacher 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.

The ideal candidate will be:

• an individual with the commitment to driving standards and ensuring every child is challenged to achieve their maximum potential

• a teacher with experience of raising attainment of all pupils in a challenging classroom 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.
