Why work at Ark Globe Academy?

In our recent Ofsted inspection, the school was judged as outstanding for the behaviour and safety of pupils and leadership, management and early years provision. We were selected to be part of the Government’s 2013-2014 Parliamentary Review of Education as an example of good practice within education. Our inclusion in the Parliamentary Review reinforces that our teacher development programme is a beacon of excellence. What’s more, the likes of Prime Minister David Cameron and President Barack Obama have visited our school.
