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 1700 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: we have high expectations of ourselves and for what our children can achieve
Excellent teaching: great teaching is what transforms children’s attainment and opens door for the future.
Exemplary behaviour: children can and should be taught to behave well, following instructions first time, every time, without question.
Depth for breadth: with a curriculum that encompasses the best of what has been thought and said ensuring our pupils have the knowledge and cultural capital to thrive in the classroom and beyond.
Knowing every child: we get to know and care deeply about each of our pupils as individuals.
Always learning we expect pupils to always learn, but also for our staff to continually develop their professional expertise, supported by Ark’s broad professional development offer.
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 sky 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.
We are looking for someone who aligns with our approach to curriculum and teaching. The successful candidate will work closely with other teachers and leaders in the AJK drama team, as well as across the Ark network to develop a truly all-through curriculum.
Travelling by rail from central London: Our nearest overground station, Turkey Street, is a 10 minute walk from the school and stops at Seven Sisters, Stoke Newington and Hackney Downs on the way to Liverpool Street. National Rail services are also a 10 minute walk and stop at Tottenham Hale and Hackney Downs before finishing at Liverpool Street.
Travelling by car: We are easily reached by car, with most of North East London accessible within 30 minutes. There is free on site parking for staff.
Flexible and part time working will be considered.
