Aims, Vision and Values

Supporting our mission is our Culture Pyramid. The pyramid sets out for students, staff and parents our purpose, our beliefs and our values. This helps to set expectations in our daily lives at Ark Globe Academy. Read more about our culture pyramid here.

Every child has the potential to succeed and there are no excuses not to achieve that success. We expect every Ark Globe Academy students to graduate from our academy with the qualifications, skills and confidence to achieve their ambitions and go on to higher education or their chosen career.


Our curriculum is intended to prepare students for university and to be leaders in their community.

The Ark Globe Curriculum encompasses the total experience of the student, covering a range of activities from what is learnt in the classroom to our expectations of how our students carry themselves, and make decisions, outside of it. For us, education is much more than a qualification; it is a way of being that results in an empowered young person who is able to secure a life of purpose and meaning.

We recognise that attending university is often key to this as, we believe, it provides young people with more choices. As such, the academic, pastoral and cultural curriculum has been designed to prepare students for university and to be leaders in their community. However, we also recognise that there are high quality alternatives to university, and we help students to secure these too. Whatever choice is made, we want it to be an informed one, where our students determine their own future. Read more about our curriculum here.
