Ark is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people in its academies. In order to meet this responsibility, its academies follow a rigorous selection process to discourage and screen out unsuitable applicants.

Ark requires all employees to undertake an enhanced DBS check. You are required, before appointment, to disclose any unspent conviction, cautions, reprimands or warnings under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975. Non-disclosure may lead to termination of employment.

About 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 and primary phases are 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:

1. High expectations: Every adult who works at AJK believes in the limitless potential of all children.
2. Excellent teaching: Subject specialists plan lessons which make pupils work hard and think deeply about the subject, fostering their curiosity and love of learning.
3. Exemplary behaviour: The AJK community is one of politeness, gratitude and service, where pupils take responsibility for their choices and want to behave impeccably.
4. Depth for breadth: An academic curriculum, rich in powerful knowledge, opens up opportunities for our children for the rest of their lives.
5. Knowing every child: A culture of respect and kindness, combined with proactive work with families, leads to positive relationships which unlock learning capabilities.
6. Always learning: Our culture of continuous improvement is supported by a research-driven programme of development and a spirit of collaboration.

Our location:
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.
