At Ark Burlington Danes Academy, we believe that everyone deserves to be accepted, included and empowered to live a life that is purposeful and fulfilling. We believe 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.
The Academy has been a beacon of academic excellence since 1699, and quite rightly our focus remains on our students achieving exceptional exam results to access the best universities and jobs. We know that a great education encompasses more than just grades. For a rich and rounded education, we know our students need high quality experiences that stretch beyond the classroom. Our carefully curated programme helps our students to develop their confidence, resilience and character, enabling them to become the leaders of the future. The commitment to our students’ broader development is evident throughout the cultural life of our school, and demonstrates why Burlington Danes is such a special place to learn.
An eleven acre site, extensive playing fields and two new state of the art buildings, including a 300-seat theatre, all contribute to a thriving environment, conducive to a productive and expansive education. However, we believe that it is the people who matter most: our fantastic staff and students. Learning is at the heart of all that we do and we are always striving maximise achievement.
A close collaborative relationship with parents is very important to us. It is our promise to listen to you and help support the development of your child. Our partnership will determine the people your children will grow up to be: successful individuals who work hard, enjoy learning, make progress and achieve.
