Ark proposal to bring together Burlington Danes Primary and Swift Primary Academies

Monday 01 November 2021

Over the past few years, there has been a growing oversupply of primary places in Hammersmith and Fulham. The borough currently has an oversupply at Reception level of nearly 20% – 8% higher than the London average.

In response to this, Ark is proposing to bring together Burlington Danes Primary Academy and Swift Primary Academy, to create one two-form entry primary school on the EdCity site from September 2023. Practically, this means we are formally consulting on:

  • The proposal to amend Ark Burlington Danes Academy’s age range from 3-19 to 11-19 (and closing Reception admissions) from September 2023
  • To vary Ark Swift Primary Academy’s funding agreement to rename the school from September 2023. We are currently proposing that the name is Ark White City Primary Academy
  • Ark is also consulting to name Ark Swift, Ark Conway and Ark Bentworth as named feeders to Ark Burlington Danes Academy from September 2023

The consultation period runs from Monday 1 November to Sunday 12 December. Please see our consultation pages for more information and to submit any feedback you might have.
