About our school:

Ark Boulton Academy is a seven-form entry secondary school in the heart of Sparkhill. Our approach is summed up in the African proverb - “It takes a whole community to bring up a child”. We work together to ensure that each of our children can overcome barriers to learning, catch up where needed and achieve at the highest levels by working harder, behaving better and making faster progress than children in other schools and academies. We support our students to develop a lifelong love of learning; a sense of personal and civic pride and the confidence to not just navigate the modern world, but to shape it. 

 

At Ark Boulton, our staff are a valuable and integral part of our community and are given the room to grow and develop in an encouraging, challenging and rewarding environment. They are our role-models and ambassadors on a professional and public level. They reflect the virtues we promote which include courage, self-discipline, commitment, and honesty. Therefore, staff wellbeing is at the heart of what we do at the academy and we will help you to be the very best that you can be, throughout your entire career.

 

By becoming a member of our school family, you will embrace multiple opportunities for personal and professional development, not just within the school, but from the internationally renowned Ark family of schools we are a part of. Through Ark, our staff can share best practice and receive training from some of the most talented individuals in the country.

We offer:

·        Staff wellbeing is one of our main priorities. We provide breakfast for staff each morning, soup for lunch and lunch for those on duty.  We have parking available, a gym on site and a well-equipped staff room including a pool table.

·        Our systems and processes for communication, marking and feedback and assessment are streamlined and the approaches we take are research led and based on the needs of our local context.  For instance, at present we do not use traditional book marking across the school.

·        On Fridays, children finish at 1.20pm, giving time and space for professional development amongst staff.

·        Staff voice is important to us; we like to listen to our staff. We are always seeking feedback and input from our staff.
