About us

Ark is a network of high-achieving, non-selective schools and one of the country’s top-performing academy groups. We run 31 academies in London, Birmingham, Portsmouth and Hastings, educating around 17,000 pupils.

Around 90% of our schools which have been inspected by Ofsted are rated as good or outstanding – compared to a national average of 80%.

Our aim is to create outstanding schools that give every pupil, regardless of their background, the opportunity to go to university or pursue the career of their choice.
