About the role

 

Ark John Keats is looking to appoint an Assistant Principal to join our leadership team in the secondary phase. You would be responsible for assessment and data and would lead on all aspects of our assessment model, including formative and summative assessments and external examinations, data analysis, intervention and reporting to parents and key stakeholders. You would work alongside our Vice Principal and other members of the senior team and these roles and responsibilities would be agreed and reviewed with the successful candidate annually to reflect the priorities of the school.

 

You would be joining a highly ambitious team of leaders and teachers at a pivotal point in the school’s journey as we build on the foundations of our school and continue to expand our numbers in KS5 and curriculum provision in all key stages. We are looking for an experienced school leader who is ready to lead at senior level, and who can drive strategic focus areas as well as contribute to the day to day running of the school.

 

The ideal candidate will have a proven history of improving systems and processes, developing leaders and teachers, and leading strategically on whole school initiatives. We welcome applications from both experienced senior leaders as well as ambitious middle leaders who are seeking to progress their career.

 

Our school

 

Ark John Keats was founded in 2013 with one class of reception children. We are now a fully-fledged all-through school, running from nursery to year 13, with over 1800 children. Our secondary school is oversubscribed, with a waiting list for every year group. Our community is composed of supportive and committed families who buy into our vision and work with us to ensure their children achieve all they are capable of in the future.

 

We aspire for all our children to have the academic knowledge necessary to enable them to progress to university, for pupils to have a love of learning and curiosity about the world, and for them to be polite, well-mannered young people who take responsibility for their choices and drive their own destinies.

 

Ark John Keats is part of Ark Schools, a hugely successful network serving pupils from deprived communities. Our network shares a belief in our six pillars:

 

High expectations: Every adult who works at AJK believes in the limitless potential of all children.

Excellent teaching: Subject specialists plan lessons which make pupils work hard and think deeply about the subject, fostering their curiosity and love of learning.

Exemplary behaviour: The AJK community is one of politeness, gratitude, and service, where pupils take responsibility for their choices and want to behave impeccably.

Depth for breadth: An academic curriculum, rich in powerful knowledge, opens opportunities for our children for the rest of their lives.

Knowing every child: A culture of respect and kindness, combined with proactive work with families, leads to positive relationships which unlock learning capabilities.

Always learning: A research-driven programme of development and a spirit of collaboration support our culture of continuous improvement.

 

At Ark John Keats, we believe in rigour – our curriculum is full of challenge, and we know that our children are intellectually resilient and capable of learning lots in every subject no matter what their starting point.

 

We believe in exemplary behaviour – we have high standards and support all children to reach these, by focusing on developing pupils’ self-regulation, explicitly teaching pupils how to behave, and by working closely with families.

 

We believe in the limitless potential of all children – if children work hard, there are no limits to what they can achieve.

You will have ten days of CPD over the course of the year. We have a no-email policy after 6pm or at weekends to safeguard work/life balance for our team, and a free gratitude breakfast for all staff on Fridays to share our appreciation for each other.
