Prepare for university
Getting to and through a top university, higher level or degree apprenticeship is about more than writing a good UCAS application. You need a combination of skill, drive and knowledge. At Ark Globe Academy Sixth Form we develop this through lessons, enrichment activities, learning family time, visits and supported independent study. We also work with the following partner organisations to ensure you have the support you need to get.
The Access Project – offer 1:2:1 tutoring in a range of subjects and bespoke support for Oxbridge and Medicine candidates
Coachbright – offers 1:2:1 academic coaching with recent graduates to maximise your personal drive and discipline
The Brilliant Club – gives students a taste of university learning as they write essays alongside a PhD student from a top university.
Enjoy Education - offer 1:2:1 tutoring and study skills workshops and bespoke support for Oxbridge and STEM subject specific students.
In 2017, 100% of our students received a university offer, 48% have gone on to a Russell Group university (the top 25 in the country and the leading research universities in Britain) and 69% have gone on to a top third university.
Each year students from across the Ark Schools network have the opportunity to apply for one of our university bursaries donated by supporters of the Ark Schools network. The bursaries are awarded to students who have not only shown great academic potential but those who have been committed to school and their community.
We are very proud that 4 of our students were awarded bursaries from Marshall Wace. Congratulations to Aneesha and Ridwan who will be receiving £1000 a year for the duration of their courses, Ester who will receive £3000 a year for the duration of her course and Zareen who will receive £9000 a year for the duration of her course.
