Ark Globe Academy: #GlobeWings

Celebrating a 10th anniversary.

Ark Globe Academy, a leading London school, is working with integrated communications agency Brands2Life to recognise the ambition of its students as it celebrates its 10th anniversary. This activity is the latest in Brands2Life’s ongoing partnership with the school, which dates from the agency’s move to Southwark in 2016.​

Over the last decade, Ark Globe Academy, which has over a thousand students from age 5-18 based at its site in Elephant and Castle, Southwark, has turned itself around from a failing school to one which has seen 100% of its students receive a university offer since 2017, including several from Oxbridge. 70% of Post 16 grades attained in the last academic year were A*-B or D*-D.​​

To mark the anniversary milestone, Brands2Life has helped the school shape an inspiring story, centred on the career aspirations of all students, to demonstrate the drive that exists within the school. This has been brought to life by an illustration, “Globe Wings”, created by Brands2Life’s design team, depicting hundreds of dream jobs. Each feather in the wings contains one of the jobs individually drawn by a student, and then coloured and combined into one huge graphic by the Brands2Life design team. The wings are now on display as an immense, five-metre-wide installation near the entrance of the school to mark the anniversary and inspire students and the wider community.

The story was picked up across several publications such as here and here.
