Ark Priory Primary Academy is a two -form entry primary school that opened in September 2013. It was awarded outstanding status in 2015. It is heavily oversubscribed and enjoys a strong reputation in the community. As a growing school, next year we will have our first cohort of Year 6 pupils.

Ark Priory has consistently exceeded national results in KS1 and EYFS assessments. Our phonics programme is a particular strength, with 100% pass rates in the year 1 phonics screening for three years running. This is not, however, at the expense of a broad and rich curriculum. For example, the academy is a STEM partner school for the Enthuse award and is currently working towards the Artsmark for excellence in music, art and drama. We foster strong relationships with all our pupils and their families and provide opportunities not only to consolidate outstanding academic foundations but also to flourish as informed and well-rounded individuals.
If you are looking for an opportunity to contribute to our future success and be part of children’s development at a crucial time in their life, we would love to hear from you. Please see our website to find out more.
Our ideal candidate will:
• be a positive role model for the pupils in their care,
• believe in the potential of every child and be committed to seeing that every child reaches that potential,
• be able to inspire learning beyond the classroom, ensuring that learning doesn’t stop once the school day ends,
• possess the skills and determination to make a significant difference to the lives of the children,
• be happy to contribute to the success of this exciting new learning community.
Applications must be made by noon on Friday 6th December 2019. We will review applications as we receive them and may contact applicants before the closing date. Interviews will take place from Monday 9th December 2019.
