Ofsted and Performance Data


Following a full inspection on 21-22 November 2013, Burlington Danes Academy was judged outstanding in all four categories. The achievement of pupils, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety of pupils, and leadership and management all received the highest grading based on the new Ofsted criteria, introduced in September 2013.

The inspection report begins: “The mission to provide the very best education for every pupil within a caring and safe environment has become a reality in this outstanding academy. Students, staff and parents are proud to be part of this mission and speak very highly about the academy.”

The full Ofsted report is available to read here. You can also visit the Ofsted website for details of the outstanding education provided by Burlington Danes Academy.


At Key Stage 4 we achieved a national average Progress 8 score and our Attainment 8 of 45.2 puts us above the national average.  61% of students achieved 5+ 9-4 including English and Maths and 27% achieved the EBacc measure.  English had another strong year of results, with 70% of students achieving a 5+ in the English portion of the EBacc measure.

Sixth Form Results this year are strong, the picture looks very promising: we are at 61% 3+ A* - C, a high percentage, even more so given that we do not share the high entry requirements of neighbouring schools.

The majority of our pupils in Year 13 (69%) obtained A* – C grades which augurs well for the quality of teaching and subject understanding by our staff.  50% of students went on to attend their first choice of university and 23% are now attending a Russell Group institution.

Top students include:

Ezra Gill - History, Philosophy and Maths A*A*A* - Bristol (History)

Khadija Warsame - Biology, Chemistry and Maths AAA – UCL (Medicine)

Hana Abukar - Biology, Chemistry and Maths A*AB – UCL (Pharmacy)
