Welcome to the academy staff page. At Ark Boulton we are fortunate to have a rosta of dedicated, well-qualified and hard working people. Staff wellbeing is at the heart of what we do at the academy and we know that for staff to become the best versions of themselves we must invest in their training, which is why as part of Ark's commitment to continuing professional development we have twice the number of training days than is normal.
