Secondary School Entrance Changes

From Monday 14th January our entrance on Wood Lane will be open to students only until 8:55am. Students will also leave via this entrance as usual at the end of the school day. Any students arriving after 8.55am will have to enter via the Du Cane Road entrance and register at the all-through reception, which is located in the Primary. They will then be escorted to their lessons.  

All visitors, parents and guests will arrive and leave via the Du Cane Raod entrance, at all times and also check in to the all-through reception.

The all-through reception is reached by following the pavement around to the left and entering the primary building. 

Welcome and congratulations to our incoming Reception pupils

We'd like to say a huge congratulations to everyone who's been offered a place at Ark Burlington Danes Primary Academy for this September.

At Ark Burlington Danes Primary Academy we provide a welcoming, safe and happy environment, where everyone is respected and listened to, a school where we take pride in our achievements, celebrate success and recognise unique talents, under the motto every pupil matters: every lesson counts.

This is an exciting time to be joining the school; as well as enjoying the excellent facilities that Ark Burlington Danes has to offer, the primary academy will enjoy its own brand new building where our pupils have the space and security to learn and develop.  Our new building, due for completion in June 2016 on the Ark Burlington Danes site, will provide pupils with a separate play space and outdoor learning areas to allow them to grow both in and out of the classroom.

What happens now?

Starting school can be a daunting experience, so we want to make this process as easy as possible for every single parent and pupil. That's why we are always happy to meet local parents and pupils, show them around Ark Burlington Danes Primary Academy, and answer any questions they may have about the school. Please email the Principal Lisa Crispin to make an appointment.

When you have confirmed your place, we will be inviting you and your child to a taster day so that you can get a feel for what life at Ark Burlington Danes Primary Academy will be like and to explain what will happen in those first days at school.

All that remains to say is a huge congratulations; we can't wait to welcome you this September!
