Dear Candidate,


Thank you for taking the time to find out more about joining Ark Soane Academy.  Ark Soane Academy is a new secondary school in Acton which opened in September 2021 to 180 year 7 students.  We will continue to grow by 180 students each year until reaching full capacity in 2028.

Ark Soane Academy seeks to redefine what is possible in education: by insisting on the highest standards of behaviour; by delivering an immaculately planned and highly academic curriculum exceptionally well; and by providing our students with a compelling aspiration-raising ethos we seek to transform the future of students in a highly deprived community.


To do this we are recruiting the brightest and best graduates in the country to join us as Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs).  Our GTAs are given extensive support to develop into future teachers and leaders in education with an opportunity to remain at Soane as a trainee teacher after successful completion of a year in role.

We have an unwavering belief that every child can meet the highest expectations of behaviour, effort and academic progress.  Our GTAs are critical to supporting those children who find it hardest to meet those expectations to do so.  As a GTA you will be trained in delivering a small number of interventions to individuals and small groups – ranging from literacy to emotional regulation and from personal organisation to relationship building.


The successful candidate will have some relevant experience of working with children and the drive and enthusiasm to inspire our students. Crucial to this role is the ability to coach and develop students to become the best version of themselves.  The successful candidate will be someone who is excited and motivated by this responsibility.

We are now recruiting for GTAs available to start in September 2024.  We will consider earlier start dates on a case-by-case basis.
