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. 

Here are the details of the programme:

Open Morning

This is an opportunity to visit the school whilst it is in action.

Thursday 8 March 2018, 9:00 - 10:15am

Primary school visits

New starters are visited in their current schools so that we can understand their individual educational needs.

April – June 2018

Administration Evening

On this evening you will complete the school’s admissions forms with the support of our administration team. It also gives you another opportunity to meet some of our staff.

Thursday 17 May 2018, 4:00 - 6:00pm


A barbecue for Year 6 parents and children to give them an opportunity to meet other parents and teachers as part of a fun event at the school.

Thursday 5 July 2018, 4:30 - 6:30pm

Taster Day

At our Taster Days children can meet their teachers and classmates, experience a typical day and get used to the school environment. They are fun days designed to make children feel safe and secure at Ark Globe.

Thursday 28 June 2018

Summer School

An opportunity for Year 6 to get a further taster of the subjects they will study at Ark Globe Academy. It gives your child an opportunity to begin to form new friendships ahead of September. This also helps the school to ensure that children are assigned to the correct ability groups right from the start of the new term.

Monday 20 August to Friday 24 August 2018
