Transition Programme

Starting secondary school is an important and sometimes daunting time for both children and parents. At Ark Globe we want to make this process as smooth as possible so we have put together a Transition programme created to ease the move from primary to secondary school.We run a series of events in the run up to September designed to help the transition from year 6 to 7. From taster days and Summer schools to fun barbecues and residential trips, we aim to ensure that our new year 7 have lots of opportunities to make friends, see the academy and meet their new teachers ahead of starting here. 

Open Events 

On Thursday 9 March 2017 we will be holding two events that we encourage you to attend. 

Thursday 9 March Open Morning - 9:00-10:15am

The Open morning is for those parents and children who have been offered a place at Ark Globe but have not yet seen the school. We encourage you to attend this event as it will provide you with the opportunity to see the school on a normal working day. This will give you a real insight into how the school is run which will help to ensure a successful transition into our school for your child.

Thursday 9 March Parent information evening - 5:00-6:00pm 

Our parent information evening is an opportunity for all parents who have been offered a place at Ark Globe to attend a Question and Answer session with our Principal. Other members of the Senior Leadership Team will also be available to talk to if you have more personal questions about your child’s education. Tours of the school will not be available at this event.

If you are unable to make these times but would like to visit the school please contact our Student Support Office Manager, Brenda Smallhorne at or by calling 020 7407 6877 to arrange an alternative. 

The Curriculum 

Our iLearn programme in year 7 (where iGlobal combines the Humanities with PSHE (Personal, Social, Health, Emotional) and iCreate brings together the creative subjects of Art, Drama and Design Technology) also helps students develop strong relationships with their teachers by reducing the number of different classes they attend.
