Ark Soane Academy opened to 180 Year 7 students in September 2021. We will grow by 180 students each year until we reach our capacity of 1200 Y7s to Y13s in 2027.
Joining our team now will give you a unique opportunity to grow with the school with extensive opportunities for development, progression and influence as the school expands.
High-quality professional development at every stage of your career
The ongoing professional development of our staff is one of our top priorities, at every level and in every role. We offer twice the number of training days as standard, and staff benefit from weekly CPD, including subject-specific CPD, as well as bespoke coaching and network-wide opportunities. No matter what stage of your career you’re at, we’ll support you to be the best that you can be.
Had an absolutely fantastic day at @ArkSoaneAcademy. Special thanks to @MJBurnage and @robertaorme for their support and guidance throughout the day. The students talked to me with genuine interest and made me feel welcome. This is a school that is genuinely improving lives.

1/4 Was a pleasure to visit @ArkSoaneAcademy today. I was struck by the automaticity of the routines & the family dinner made my heart melt; happy, confident, grateful pupils. More than anything else, I saw warmth, smiles and polite manners filtering through every interaction..
