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. 


Welcome to Ark Burlington Danes Primary Academy

I am delighted and proud to welcome you to Ark Burlington Danes Primary Academy. We are a new school in a state-of-the-art building, but we have close ties to our sister school – Ark Burlington Danes – which can trace its origins back to 1699.

We opened our doors to our first pupils in September 2015. Our mission statement is ‘Believe, Dream and Persevere to Achieve’. We believe in a school where a love of learning and resilience leads to fantastic results for our children.

Ark Burlington Danes Primary is a friendly, safe and happy school, where everyone is respected and listened to. We take pride in our achievements, celebrate success and recognise the unique talents of our children and staff.

I look forward to meeting you to tell you more about our wonderful school and how it can help your child.
