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. 

An Offer from Cambridge

Burlington Danes Academy would like to congratulate Year 13 student Adekunle Awodele on receiving a conditional offer to study Architecture at Trinity College, Cambridge – an incredible achievement.

Head of Sixth Form Ms Megaw said: “All three of Adekunle’s assessors said they were very impressed with his interview and that he was a very unique student. Adekunle should be especially commended for his research around architecture, for which he has a real love and passion”

The University of Cambridge is revered worldwide for its academic excellence, with the Department of Architecture, which celebrated its centenary in 2012, consistently ranked in the UK’s top three.

Trinity is one of the university’s three royal colleges and enjoys a formidable reputation for success, with 31 Nobel Prize winners amongst its illustrious alumni. It is also the largest of all the Oxbridge colleges.

Ms Megaw continued: “I am also immensely proud of all our Year 13 students who made their applications to Oxbridge, many of whom got through to the interview stages.

"It is a great achievement to secure even the predictive grades for an Oxbridge application and candidates are within the top 5% of the country if considered for a place. We look forward to supporting Adekunle through this exciting journey.”
