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. 

Rivers of the World Project

Burlington Danes pupils have been participating in an exciting international art and education project in recent months, linking over 2,000 young people around the world.

The Rivers of the World project partners young people from London with students in Dubai, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Pakistan. Together they study their local city rivers as inspiration for artwork to be displayed publically.

Some of those involved in the initiative ventured to the Southbank last week to be interviewed by the BBC about their participation, appearing on the news the same night. One journalist was particularly impressed by the group, commenting on their extraordinary knowledge and eloquence.

The project has provided over 30 BDA students with the opportunity to collaborate with professional artists from both Bangladesh and London, creating work that represents the River Thames and the River Surma (Bangladesh).

Miss Stone, Assistant Principal, said: “It is an important project as it forces young people to engage with the river running through their city, something we are not as used to in developed countries such as the UK as we are very fortunate to have clean water piped directly into our homes.”

The impressive finished artwork is currently on show at the Southbank as part of The Mayor’s Thames Festival, and will soon be on display in the academy.

Well done on being such great ambassadors for Burlington Danes!
