Life at Ark Globe for Year 7s

Welcome to Ark Globe Academy! We are very excited for you to join us in the new academic year and wanted to take this opportunity to introduce you all to life at Ark Globe.

Over the next few weeks, we will be regularly uploading videos and resources for you to access prior to your transition to Year 7. We hope that these will help you to familiarise yourself with the school, the staff and our culture.

Culture Pyramid Intro

Culture Pyramid Resources

At Ark Globe Academy, our Culture Pyramid is central to our way of life. It determines our purpose, beliefs and values.

Social Justice

At Globe Academy, social justice is our purpose. We promote a fair society where everyone will have equal opportunities to determine their future. 

Growth Mindset

We believe that success is based on how hard you work and your ability to continue trying when in difficult situations. 


It is important to consider how you want to present yourself in many ways. This might include the work you produce and the way you look and how you communicate. 


By forming strong bonds with staff and other students, you will be able to overcome any challenges that you might face. This is why we set Relationships as one of our values. 


It is important that you stay true to your values and beliefs and complete honest reflection on them to be successful. 


Building independence in our learners is important to us because it empowers you to fulfil your potential and for you to take ownership over this journey.
