Welcome from our Principal, Mr Paul Bhatia

I am delighted to welcome you to Ark Burlington Danes Academy.

Having been founded as a Christian charity school in 1699, we are proud not just of our heritage and significant history, but especially of how this Christian ethos permeates all aspects of our school life.

We believe that everyone deserves to be accepted, included and empowered to live a life that is purposeful and fulfilling and that through learning to our fullest potential and living a life filled with kindness and thankfulness, we can be the ones to make the world a better place.

We provide a full, rigorous and academic education which enables students to go on to the university or career of their choice. We know that it is qualifications which will open doors for our young people. Beyond the examined curriculum, we have a well-developed character programme and a full programme of enrichment activities. As a school we instil and develop our seven key values in all our students, so that they may go on to live life in all its fullness.

Please don't hesitate to be in contact if you would like to see the school in action.

Paul Bhatia, Principal

Returning to school and key updates:

In light of the government's announcements which were released on 2nd July, the senior team are putting together plans for a full reopening in September. As ever, the health and wellbeing of students, staff and parents will remain at the heart of our planning. We will update you once we have a firm plan in place for next academic year. In the meantime, we are continuing to offer onsite provision for selected students and online provision for all.
