Ask Ark Alumni



Ark alumna, Janelle Johnson left Ark Burlington Danes Academy in 2018. Now she is in her second year of studying Cultural Studies and Media at the University of Kent and has built the online show Over The Table, a platform for young people to have open and honest conversations about the issues they face.

As part of the "Ask Ark Alumni" series, recent alumnus Donavere Benjamin-Mahon has put together a fascinating look at his life in Hong Kong, where he is currently studying at City University whilst on a year abroad as part of his politics degree.

Marcella studied with us in both the lower school and sixth form, and has since made the most of the opportunities made available to her, including internships, a scholarship and foreign travel.
She is currently writing a scientific paper on last year's earthquake in Indonesia.


With the support and guidance from his teachrs at Burlington Danes, Mabast was able to pursue both his extra-curricular and academic interests. He is currently undertaking a Masters at UCL, having completed his undergraduate studies at Imperial College London.
