School Description

This inspection is a section 8 deemed section 5 inspection, due to the addition of a new primary phase in 2015. Currently, the primary phase has pupils up to and including Year 3. Ark and the local governing board have recently appointed a new principal and a new executive principal to oversee the all-through school. There is also a new acting principal of the primary phase. The Ark regional director, the Ark director of secondary and the Ark director of primary are supporting these new leadership appointments. The Inspection report: Ark Burlington Danes Academy, 2–3 October 2018 Page 10 of 13 post-16 Ark director is supporting the 16 to 19 programmes of study. In July 2017, the founding principal of the new primary phase died. Following the Grenfell Tower fire, 500 pupils from Kensington Aldridge Academy were taught temporarily on Ark Burlington Danes Academy site. Ark Burlington Danes Academy is an all-through, Church of England school, which is part of the Ark multi-academy trust. Just over half of the pupils are known to be eligible for the pupil premium, which is above the national average. The majority of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds, which is higher than the national average. Almost half of the pupils speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils who have an education, health and care plan is in line with the national average. A small number of pupils attend alternative provision at Courtyard Alternative Provider, The Childerley Centre and West Thames College. The school met the government’s floor standards in 2017, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress.

Pupil heat map key

How many pupils attending the school live in the area?


The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.
