An exciting opportunity to join a pioneering school in north London.  

Ark John Keats Academy aims to provide pupils from Nursery to 6th Form with a highly effective and enjoyable education. Our approach is underpinned by our six pillars: 

A Mastery Curriculum 

High Quality Teaching 

Strong Discipline 

Character Development 

Raising Aspirations & Enrichment 

Developing Education Leaders 

This is an exciting stage in the academy’s development as we continue to grow towards full capacity. We currently have pupils from Nursery to Year 4 and Years 7 to 10.  

The academy staff, pupils and parents are incredibly aligned, committed and passionate about our school. We have been graded as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted and pupils make rapid progress in our calm, purposeful and happy environment. 

We are very enthusiastic about the unique teaching model we are developing for our Key Stage 2 phase which came into effect in September 2016 for our founding Year 3 cohort. The model has been developed in line with our pillars and is aimed at providing pupils in the primary phase with high quality specialist subject teaching. Now we are looking to recruit more primary specialist teachers to join the team. The role will involve teaching all aspects of English or Mathematics in the mornings to our Year 3, 4 or 5 cohorts and teaching a different subject/or subjects in the afternoons, for example science, history, PE or art. 

We are also open to the exciting possibility that the Year 5 teaching team can continue to teach our founding cohort and take them from Year 5 up to Year 6 in September 2019.  

These posts offer successful candidates the opportunity to play a leading role in developing our Key Stage 2 specialist provision and provide first class teaching for pupils. It is a wonderful opportunity to be a member of a school that is breaking the mould by giving pupils from relatively disadvantaged backgrounds a type and standard of education previously the preserve of the best fee-paying schools. It also enables our primary and secondary specialists to work together in creating a content-rich, cumulative and coherent curriculum across phases.  

Our ideal candidate will be an outstanding teacher with a very strong interest in the relevant subject area/areas.  We would very much like to hear from you if you share our vision, values and enthusiasm. We are very happy to talk about the post informally if you require more information.  

For further information, a confidential discussion or for any technical queries please contact Victoria Edwards our Primary Co-ordinator who will answer any questions and be able to put you in touch with Amy Baird our Head of Primary.
