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. 

Secondary School league Tables

England’s secondary school league tables were published yesterday, confirming Burlington Danes Academy’s impressive progress in a year that saw an overall drop in the UK’s exam results. The tables show BDA’s rise to 77% of pupils achieving 5A*-C at GCSE (including English and maths) against the national average of 59%.

Dame Sally said: “I’m delighted that Burlington Danes Academy has achieved its best results ever. This is particularly satisfying within the context of more challenging grade boundaries.”

To compare BDA’s performance with that of other schools in the local area please visit:
