About Ark Acton Academy:
Our mission is a simple one, to ensure that all Ark Acton students thrive at university or a real alternative and therefore live a life to be proud of. In order to make this happen we focus intently on two main areas of school life. Our academic curriculum and our extensive co-curricular programme.
We place the curriculum – what we teach – at the heart of the academy and it informs all decisions we make. We invest heavily in allowing staff to become curriculum experts and members of the SLT are regular speakers on curriculum design and implementation. At Ark Acton we have stripped away anything we feel gets in the way of being a great teacher so that we can focus on teaching and are committed to staff welfare and staff development.
About Ark Schools:
Ark is a charity that aims to transform children’s lives through education. In the UK, the strongest predictor of how a child will do at school continues to be what their parents do for a living – but why should this be the accepted status quo? By working in our network at one of our 39 schools, you will be directly making a positive impact on young people’s lives through high-quality teaching and thoughtful consideration of all backgrounds and needs, making educational equity a reality.
About Ark Teacher Training:
Ark Teacher Training (ATT) is a school-based programme offering the perfect mixture of theory and classroom practice to develop you into the best teacher you can be. Because we believe that every child, regardless of their background, deserves to have access to a great education, we work mainly in communities of lower income with a history of academic underachievement. We are very proud to have just received our second ‘outstanding’ rating from Ofsted in all categories! There are only a few ITTs in the UK that can say the same. Alongside this, our programme is also incredibly supportive and bespoke, as you will see below.
