Transform lives through education

Change lives with Ark schools

Many of our pupils face big challenges: nearly 40% are eligible for free school meals and 35% speak English as an additional language. 

Even so, we're helping pupils to achieve their goals. Last year, 80% of our Year 13 pupils won a place at university. By joining us, you too could help transform pupils' lives. As part of our team you will:

Work with exceptional people

One of the things our team members value most is working with people who are as passionate as they are. Working alongside people who have transformed struggling schools into thriving ones, you’ll be challenged and inspired every day.

Keep learning throughout your career

We couldn't transform children's lives without the hard work and expertise of our team. That's why we invest in helping our people become the very best they can be. Our school staff have twice the standard number of training days. And we don't stop your training once you reach a certain level – we support you from beginning your career to leading your own school.

Be part of an international network

In addition to operating schools in the UK, Ark runs education, child protection and health programmes internationally. Since 2011,  we've partnered with PEAS, an organisation running 26 secondary schools in rural Uganda and Zambia. And Ark has just opened a new primary school in India.  With our Ark Fellows programme, you have the chance to have an impact beyond your classroom. Way beyond. Ark Fellows is an opportunity for talented and ambitious teachers to work in our international schools or partners for a two-week, expenses-paid placement.
