EdCity: a new home for Ark and the education sector

A unique not-for-profit partnership between Ark and Hammersmith & Fulham Council. This £150m investment grew out of Ark’s history in the area and will shape our future. West London was the site of the first Ark school. Now 1EdCity will become a home for Ark as well as a hub for the education sector.

Opening up the community

Designed to be a gateway that links up different parts of the community, EdCity is a campus that will create opportunities for learning, skills development and work as well as homes for local people in an historically underserved part of London. The office block, 1EdCity, will be the new location for Ark’s central team and will also provide a hub for purpose-driven organisations.

Grounded in the community, the office will sit alongside Ark White City Primary Academy and WEST, a state-of-the-art youth centre run by Onside. The site will also incorporate a nursery, adult learning hub and housing developed by Hammersmith & Fulham.

Connecting Education

1EdCity will provide a new home for the Ark central team, and our aspiration is to create a hub for the wider education sector. The building has lots of events and shared office space and we want other, mission-aligned organisations that are focused on improving the lives of children, especially through education, to join us at this hub as EdCitizens.

Whether you’re looking for office space or somewhere to run training or events (or even a podcasting studio), we want to make sure that 1EdCity is open for the education sector.
