About Ark Burlington Danes Academy
Ark Burlington Danes Academy is an all-through school in west London.
Ark Ark Burlington Danes, every pupil matters. Every lesson counts. We are the beginning of lifelong learning. Every teacher is committed to ‘no excuses’: no matter your background, circumstances or ability you will succeed. Expectations are high and we will not give up on any child. Staff work hard. Much of the teaching I observe around the school in both the primary and the secondary phase is inspirational.
‘What does great look like?’ is a key lever in our ongoing improvement.
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 everyone deserves to be accepted, included and empowered to live a life that is purposeful and fulfilling. Our curriculum is a key driver of this vision and our Christian ethos. We place the curriculum at the heart of school life. It drives all other decisions that we make and is the best means we have of demonstrating as a school what we believe in and what we stand for. Our curriculum is a broad, balanced and equitable offer; built around the core disciplines of English, mathematics, science, humanities, languages and religious education. All subject areas prepare pupils for future study within their discipline, with mastery of core and foundation subjects ensuring pupils have choice later on in their education; as they specialise in key areas of study. The curriculum in each subject area has been designed backwards from university study, through A-Level, GCSE, and into the Primary and Early Years phase to ensure students can reach their fullest potential.

I feel really lucky I’ve had so much support from my Head of Department and the school’s senior leadership team. Everyone has been helpful. You do feel like you’re part of a family and everyone’s on the same side.- Miss R, Textiles Teacher at Ark Burlington Danes Academy
