Transforming lives through education

Ark is an education charity that exists to make sure that all children, regardless of their background, have access to a great education and real choices in life.

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.

From working with just one school, 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.
