Staff, students and friends of Burlington Danes Academy flooded the Dennis Potter theatre on Monday evening for a celebration of the success and high-achievement of our pupils.
After a reception of drinks and canapés, guests made their way into the theatre for a warm welcome from Dame Sally, ahead the first academic presentations.
Following prizes from the art and design, business studies, and English and media faculties, Chair of Governors Lord Stanley Fink took to the stage to address to the audience. Presentations for humanities, languages and maths followed.
BDA’s strings group then performed a fantastic rendition of The Beatles’ classic All You Need is Love, before the awards for physical education, performing arts, religious education and science were presented. Former BDA student Abdul-Quddus Akinwale (class of 2012) spoke to the theatre about preparing for life at university.
The evening concluded with additional presentations in recognition of academic scholarship and excellent teaching. Thanks to all who attended for your continued support and well done to all who received awards. Keep it up.
