A new era begins for Ark Burlington Danes Academy with the creation of the primary phase, planning permission has been granted and ground breaking on a state of the art building, along with roof garden will begin in earnest at the end of April.  A school, however, is not buildings alone, and as Ark Burlington Danes Primary Academy our vision will be to provide a welcoming, safe and happy environment where pride is taken in achievements, success is celebrated and unique talents are recognised.

To be at the beginning of a school’s life is both exciting and daunting, however, the primary phase has the added bonus of a ‘big sister’ in Ark Burlington Danes Academy.  Sharing of resources and expertise will give pupils continuity and consistency, bridging the often challenging transition from Primary to Secondary school.

In 2013 Ark Burlington Danes Academy achieved an ‘outstanding’ recognition from OFSTED – something for the primary academy to aspire to and uphold.  It is with this in mind that our journey begins.
