We believe that, with the right teaching, every child can achieve great things. Our academies give children from all backgrounds an exceptional education – and real choices about their future.


In 2015, we’ll open a new type of school for our networked world, ARK Pioneer Academy in London, for children between 3 and 18.


About you

We need you to lead the academy. You’ll have the chance to research blended learning, and other teaching methods, before putting the best of your research into practice. This is a rare opportunity, not only to build a school from scratch, but to implement a new way of teaching.

You’ll need to have a vision of what exceptional education is like, and you’ll be passionate about using innovation to achieve it. You’ll be enthusiastic about exploring educational ideas, and eager to use them to lead a school where students achieve more than they believe is possible.

You may be interested in leading the school on your own. Or you may prefer to share the role as a co-principal, heading up either the primary or secondary phase. Either way, we’re flexible about the leadership model for ARK Pioneer and keen to hear from exceptional school leaders.


You’ll receive a highly competitive salary, and unrivalled professional development. More importantly, by pioneering new practices, you’ll help shape education throughout ARK Schools – and beyond.

ARK Schools is committed to safeguarding children; successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
