Ark Schools

Welcome to Ark's Supply Service. On this page, you can find all the information you may need about joining our staff bank.

Transforming lives through education

Ark is a charity that aims to transform children’s lives through education. 

We started with one school, fourteen years ago

We’ve always believed that, with the right approach, every school has the potential to succeed – even those in the most challenging circumstances. Nothing should be a barrier to children achieving.

Ark has since grown into a network of 38 schools in the UK – and is now recognised as one of the highest achieving academy groups in the country. We still only work in the communities where we can make the biggest difference to children’s lives, and all our schools are non-selective.

“We’re pleased to be working with The Supply Register. As specialists in the education staffing sector, their expertise and experience will provide a high level of service to our schools.

Their partnership with NASUWT and their ethical and fair approach to supply staff by aiming to increase pay for teachers, reduce costs to schools and help build better relationships with agencies really resonates with us as a network. We’re looking forward to working with The Supply Register to bring the best talent to all Ark schools.”

Jerry Collins, Director of Secondary Education
