Ark is an international charity, transforming lives through education. We exist to give every young person, regardless of their background, a great education and real choices in life. In the UK, we run 35 schools, educating over 20,000 pupils. These schools are all non-selective and in areas where they can make the biggest difference. We also set up ventures and partnerships that not only help pupils in our own schools, but improve education systems as a whole.
