‘It takes a whole community to bring up a child’ is not just a motto at Ark Boulton, it influences the way we support each other, our parents, students and other stakeholders.
Our teachers are the backbone of this community and are given the room to grow and develop in an encouraging, challenging and rewarding environment. As role-models they exemplify the virtues we strive to instil in our students, which include courage, self-discipline, commitment and honesty.
Become a member of our school family and 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. As a result, our staff can share best practice and receive training from some of the best educators in the country. In a typical day, teachers follow a set structure for lessons that students are accustomed to. This allows our teachers to make the most of the lesson time and manage behaviour with a standardised routine.
In addition, weekly meetings and reviews provide time for staff to deepen their teaching knowledge and styles while developing strong, resilient and adaptive teams.
Our strapline ‘growing together, reaching higher’ applies as much to our staff as our students. We recognise that the health and wellbeing of our staff will affect that of our students. For this reason, we have invested in developing our wellbeing room and other initiatives to care for our whole school community.
If you are someone who understands the difference a great education can make to pupils lives, have a passion and belief in the potential of every student, and are excited at the prospect of growing as an educator, we look forward to hearing from you.

About Ark Boulton Academy
We are an eight-form entry secondary school in Sparkhill, Birmingham which has developed from strength to strength in the last few years. Across this website you can read our latest news, discover our outstanding GCSE results, and learn why we were rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in 2017 before being featured in the Parliamentary Review 2017/8.
As a member of our school, we offer you opportunities for personal and professional development. We strongly believe that a happy and well supported teacher will be able to deliver the best to those that they teach and meet throughout their day. This puts wellbeing at the forefront of the workday. Our wellbeing room, soup deliveries and other small ever-evolving initiatives are designed to help you be your best. On a Friday afternoon, we encourage all staff to leave early in order to be recuperated before the next week begins.
Professionally, the school is a member of the international Ark family of schools, resulting in continuous opportunities for professional progression. The school not only trains new teachers as part of the ark teacher training programme, all staff members are also invited to ‘Network Days’ where we are able to visit other Ark schools and learn from the diverse and skilled talent within the Ark family. The result is broader exposure and innovative ideas which can be further explored during our inset days.
This family ethos extends to the care and education we provide our students. Our staff members are ambassadors for our virtues curriculum, so we encourage and support them to create a positive work environment in order to be their best selves and model what we expect from our students. We look for your support to deliver our vision of nurturing young people who can reflect, examine and excel as well-rounded, socially and morally conscious individuals with a greater awareness of the world around them.
The culture and ethos of our school, along with the opportunities provided to our staff and students, are a direct result of the most enthusiastic and dedicated staff team. We are blessed to have such a team, who don’t shy away from hard work, who love our children and want them to succeed.
