Ark Greenwich Free School

Described as “among the highest performing schools in the country” (Evening Standard), Ark Greenwich Free School exists to empower young people, regardless of socio-economic background, to grow and be successful. We provide the very best all-round education and nurture a range of talents and skills including through our successful performing and expressive arts programme. Our pupils possess huge musical potential and we are eagerly anticipating the right candidate to unlock this and bring music to the forefront of our school. We are proud of our highly respectful and disciplined community and of the outstanding academic outcomes achieved by our pupils. Expectations for all members of our community are unashamedly sky high. This is an ambitious and forward-thinking school that encourages innovation and values its staff. We work tirelessly to impact the lives of the young people we serve.

How is Ark Greenwich different to other schools?

  • We are part of the Ark family of schools and benefit accordingly from outstanding networking and career opportunities and first-class CPD.
  • Staff wellbeing is one of our main priorities. We provide breakfast for staff each morning and have a 6pm/weekend work related communication curfew to ensure our staff can maintain an effective work/life balance.
  • This is a small school model (600 students aged 11-16) because we believe that our close-knit community provides the optimum conditions for success.  
  • Behaviour for learning is exceptional so our teachers can focus their time on the things that matter – planning and delivering brilliant lessons for our students.
  • We have 60 mins of high quality staff training every week and run coaching for staff.
  • Our students enjoy a compulsory co-curricular program on a Wednesday afternoon which includes a strong focus on community volunteering and we facilitate 12 drop down days per academic year ensuring our students benefit from a range of life enriching experiences which all staff are involved in.
  • This is a strict no excuses, no mobile phone school.
