On Purpose


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. Since opening its first school in 2006, Ark has grown into a network of 35 schools in the UK - and is now recognised as one of the highest achieving academy groups in the country. We want to change the lives of children everywhere, not just in our own schools. So we create and incubate ventures designed not only to help pupils in Ark schools, but also to improve education systems as a whole. These ventures tackle some of the most intractable problems facing children ? including poor numeracy, inadequate support for dyslexic pupils, and the lack of quality social workers.
