Opportunity to join an ‘Outstanding’ all-through academy specialising in mathematics and citizenship.

We are looking for inspirational and committed graduates to join our support team in Ark Academy. We are an all-through school based in state-of-the-art accommodation in Brent, set against the backdrop of the iconic Wembley Stadium. The school opened to reception pupils in September 2008 and then to year 7 in September 2010 when the brand new, all-through, academy was founded and the new buildings were completed. We are now full through to Year 13.

In its first Ofsted inspection the school was rated as ‘Outstanding’:

“Pupils make outstanding progress in their studies. They greatly enjoy coming to school and attendance is high. Pupils behave well and they respond enthusiastically to the growing team of dedicated staff.” (November 2010)

As a graduate teaching assistant you’ll provide support for pupils who need it most, working alongside the class teacher – either on a one to one basis or in small groups. You’ll serve as a motivational role model and work to establish a supportive and nurturing environment in which pupils can make rapid progress both academically and socially.

This role is perfect for someone who wants to become a teacher in the future. It acts as a springboard and training ground for graduates who want to learn how to teach and build transformational relationships with pupils. We are also able to offer a clear pathway of progression into the teaching profession through the Ark Schools Direct training programme (http://arkteacher We have a really good track record of previous recruits becoming teachers, many completing their training with us at Ark Academy
