Striving for excellence

"The behaviour here is outstanding, and the students are great to work with. I like the values that are embedded in the system here. It’s not just a school preparing boys and girls for academic life, it’s helping them to stand and be prepared for the world."

"I had only been here for two months when I was put on the National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership (NPQML). This is unheard of. Ark All Saints is a school that really wants you to make progress in your career. The collaborative nature of the school environment means that teachers at Ark All Saints have a good work/life balance. From the outset, teachers are told that their primary role is to ‘plan, teach and mark’, and there is no excessive paperwork."

- Mr Smith, Head of Science at Ark All Saints

Training opportunities

Our training doesn’t stop once you reach a certain level or learn a certain skill – we’ll support you throughout your whole career, from starting out as a trainee to running your own school. In order to deliver the best training and network events, we offer twice as many training days as standard. Additionally, up to three times a year, people working in specific roles or subject areas get together to share best practice and deepen their subject knowledge with peers from across the Ark network.

Our online, cloud-based learning platform also supports your development - delivering exciting content straight to you, from exemplary teaching video clips to best practice resources. All of this is in addition to the training sessions that are delivered locally by Ark All Saints. 

Be part of a network

Joining our school means becoming part of a network of education experts who are all united by the same purpose - a commitment to making a difference where it matters most. You will have the opportunity to come together with your peers locally, nationally and sometimes even internationally, to share resources, learning and good practice. 

You'll also be supported to focus on what you do best. We are always looking for ways to take away additional pressures, to give you more freedom to concentrate on improving education outcomes for young people. We offer support beyond the classroom; from prioritising strong behaviour management strategies to giving you access to our award-winning data management platform. 

Have an impact far beyond your own school

If you want to be part of the effort to advance and improve education, join Ark. From creating and working with new curricula and teaching techniques, to collaborating with other schools and partners to share what works, we’re always aiming for system change.

Through Ark Ventures, we incubate, launch and scale initiatives, such as Mathematics Mastery, English Mastery, Institute for Teaching and Ambition School Leadership, that address some of the most intractable issues in education and society – in the UK and around the world.
