Ark Byron and Ark Priory are two form entry schools based in Acton. We take great pride in the diversity of our student body, celebrating all backgrounds and cultures. Our community is already very strong and we are fortunate to have a committed and supportive parent body.

This year Ark Byron is based at its sister school, Ark Priory, which was rated “outstanding” by Ofsted in June 2015. In spring next year Ark Byron will move a short distance away to a brand new building in a fantastic park setting in Acton Park.

We offer our staff a supportive, challenging environment, coupled with a strong CPD programme. If you are looking for an opportunity to propel a new school forward and be part of children’s development at a crucial time in their life, we would love to hear from you.

Join our schools and you will be supported by the expertise of the senior leadership team and experienced network colleagues to develop your career. This is a great opportunity for those wishing to pursue a career in primary teaching and represents excellent preparation for teacher training programmes such the Ark Teacher Training programme www.arkteachertraining.org.

If you have the drive, enthusiasm and resilience for a challenging but rewarding new opportunity, then we’d love to hear from you.
