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. 

Primary Open Events in January

Please note the dates of our open events for BDA Primary prospective parents

  • 8th January: Primary Open Evening from 5.30-7pm, with headteacher's speech at 6.15pm.
  • 9th January: Open Morning from 9.30-12.30.

We are delighted that Burlington Danes Primary Academy will welcome its first 30 reception pupils in September 2014. From September 2015 onwards it will admit 60 children each year.

Our 10-acre site will be expanded to incorporate the new school for ages five to eleven. Our aim is to offer local children an outstanding primary education giving them the best possible start in life and ensuring that they have a smooth transition to secondary school at 11.

The new school will benefit from being located beside the secondary academy - sharing some of its facilities - but will have its own separate buiding and outdoor space so that it will still have the intimacy and nurture of primary school - with a successful “big sister” school alongside it.
