Become part of the aspirational Ark Alexandra family and work alongside our dedicated team of teachers, support staff and senior leaders to raise the expectations of a community and spark a passion for learning in our young people which will last a lifetime. We believe that all our students can achieve excellence, and that they all deserve the very best education in order to secure their place at university or a career of their choice.

We take the well-being of our staff seriously, as we recognise that working in a school can be a challenging profession. That’s why we offer health benefits such as a subsidised gym membership and Employee Assistance Programme or if you prefer retail therapy, staff discounts via the Ark Rewards scheme. Our strong Performance Management process means you can work with clear targets in mind to progress through the pay scale.

We are looking for someone who will be dedicated and enthusiastic to lead attendance on our William Parker campus for year groups 9 - 13 so that our young people’s attendance is consistently above the national average.

As the ideal candidate you will:

·         Be committed to raising attendance in a challenging environment

·         Have a resilient character and a strong personal drive

·         Have an unwavering determination to work with students of all abilities

·         Be committed to working with Heads of Year to secure high levels of attendance with effective   monitoring and tracking of our young people’s attendance and punctuality

·         Be committed to Ark’s ethos of high expectations and no excuses.
