What skills and experience we're looking for

We are recruiting an exceptional team of staff for September 2023 to support the growth of a genuinely transformational school. The successful candidate will join a very strong religion and philosophy department and will ensure that religion and philosophy remains at the heart of the curriculum. The successful candidate will embed the school vision and support the development of an outstanding school that empowers our students to take responsibility and drive their own destinies.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to grow with the school. They will be supported in their development and preparation for future roles. We develop every staff member that joins our team, providing one-to-one support, coaching and mentoring and access to extensive network training.

Our ideal candidate will have:

  • Have an unwavering determination to deliver excellence for students from all starting points
  • Share the Ark Soane beliefs, vision and mission and be aligned with the Ark six pillars underpinning it.
  • Be committed to Ark’s ethos of high expectations for every student in both academic achievement and personal development.
  • Be committed to continually improving classroom practice and raising attainment.

What the school offers its staff

  • Twice as many training days as standard
  • Weekly staff training designed to meet the needs of the school
  • Coaching for every teacher
  • Protected co-planning time
  • Access to high-quality, regular professional development
  • Opportunities to collaborate with colleagues across the network.

Further details about the role

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.

Behaviour at Soane is exemplary enabling you to deliver exceptional lessons. Soane students are a pleasure to teach and you can always expect a “thank you” as they leave the classroom. The curriculum ensures that teachers rarely plan alone: staff time is used where it is most valuable: working as a team to implement the curriculum for the students in our classrooms.
