Sport

Sport and PE at Burlington Danes Academy is a defining feature of the school. Students are taught to develop and refine their physical skills alongside enhancing their evaluative and decision-making techniques in increasingly complex situations. This is underpinned by an emphasis on the importance of a balanced, active and healthy lifestyle and the life-long benefits thereof.

Specialist coaches enrich the curriculum through the delivery of boxing, rugby and table-tennis, complimenting a diverse and comprehensive extra-curricular programme where BDA compete at a London, regional and national level. At Key Stage 4 students have the opportunity to follow a range of certificated courses as part of their GCSE and core PE lessons.
