Our people

Ark schools are supported by a central team which works with schools to deliver the Ark vision. The central team helps by:

  • Reinforcing the educational vision and purpose of the network.
  • Creating networks to encourage the sharing of knowledge, good practice and resources, as well as career development opportunities across the network.
  • Holding schools accountable and helping them improve their performance through regular monitoring visits and data analysis.
  • Providing educational and operational support services to the schools.

Our board of trustees oversees the central organisation and is the legal governing body for all Ark academies. The board of trustees delegates many of its functions to each academy’s governing body. Parents, staff and the local authority are represented on each local governing body.
