Ark Burlington Danes Academy is a superbly resourced, rapidly improving school with a rich history and high ambition. Our school was founded in 1699 and holds a special place in educational history as the first girls’ school in London; we are fortunate to maintain ongoing links with our alumni network. Now a mixed school in 2006, we became the founding school of the Ark network. We are a Church of England non-selective, all-through comprehensive school serving our local community, in an area of significant social disadvantage. We are close to White City underground station, with excellent links to central London, and benefit from rapidly developing professional and academic infrastructure on our doorstep. We are a short walk from Imperial College’s new faculty site and the BBC, both of whom provide opportunities to our students. We are also fortunate to have the new EdCity site, home of Ark’s new headquarters, as our neighbour, allowing us to tap into an excellent hub of pedagogical expertise.
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 education is the most powerful lever in overcoming social disadvantage, and so we commit ourselves to ensure that our children receive a holistic education that is exceptional in quality. We deliver a rigorous academic curriculum to ensure that our children are able to access every opportunity, alongside a non-examined curriculum focused on raising aspirations, personal development and our Christian values, ensuring our children are able to live life to its fullest potential. All our children participate in a programme of courageous advocacy for social causes to equip them with the skills and belief that they can be the ones to make the world a better place.
