When Charter joined the network in 2009 just 3% of pupils had achieved 5 good GCSEs. Over time results have been transformed and last year 64% of pupils achieved a grade 9 – 4, including English and maths — above the national average.

Ark Charter Academy is a real community school, closely located in walking distance of two Ark primary schools and a private  nursery. In 2015 Ark Charter Academy was also a winner of the national Pupil Premium Award recognising its achievement in the sustained improvement of outcomes for its most disadvantaged students. With a new school building opened in 2010 and building work starting again as we prepare to move from a four-form entry intake to a six-form entry school, Ark Charter is well resourced and ready to grow.

We are looking for a Principal to lead the next chapter of Ark Charter’s journey. As a creative and tenacious leader, you will build consistent levels of excellence across the school and ensure that results go from strength to strength throughout the whole school.
You will hold exceptionally high expectations for all pupils and give them every opportunity to succeed.
