Sixth Form - Welcome
As you enter the Sixth Form, it is time for you to start the most exciting stage of your education so far. In choosing your 6th form pathway, you begin to specialise in the subjects that will shape your future and bring you all the opportunities to embark on the career of your choice for the 21st Century.
BDA Sixth Form is a high-performing institution aiming to give all students the opportunity to continue to higher education whatever their background. Whilst benefitting from the resources and facilities of the Burlington Danes Academy site, we maintain a separate culture and identity, built around personalised learning, high achievement and preparation for university.
At Burlington Danes Academy we are extremely proud of our vibrant Sixth Form, which delivers traditional A levels as well as a variety of vocational courses. Our students enjoy their studies and use their initiative to seize every chance offered to extend their knowledge through work placements, University courses and other experiences that being in London has to offer.
Our mission is to prepare students for university and in recent years we’ve seen BDA pupils progress to some of the UK’s most prestigious institutions, such as Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College, UCL, Bristol and Durham. Students have been successfully awarded full scholarships to study at some of the highest ranking universities in the world such as, Harvard University and MIT.
Students join us from schools all over London attracted by tutorial and seminar style teaching by teachers who are passionate experts preparing you for higher education and the world of work beyond school. Our purpose built Performing Arts and Sixth Form Centre provides a state of the art learning space exclusively for sixth formers. Substantial investment in ICT means that students enjoy free access to PCs and Apple Macs.
We offer a range of traditional A level courses that enable students to compete for places at top universities. We also offer a BTEC Extended Diploma in Sports as well as professional pathways in Business Studies and ICT. Students who study ARK’s Business Professional Pathway are 10 times more likely to go to a Russell Group or top third university than national average. Professional Pathways students have exclusive opportunities to engage with top companies who will deliver sessions, workshops and events throughout the course.
