Secondary School Entrance Changes

From Monday 14th January our entrance on Wood Lane will be open to students only until 8:55am. Students will also leave via this entrance as usual at the end of the school day. Any students arriving after 8.55am will have to enter via the Du Cane Road entrance and register at the all-through reception, which is located in the Primary. They will then be escorted to their lessons.  

All visitors, parents and guests will arrive and leave via the Du Cane Raod entrance, at all times and also check in to the all-through reception.

The all-through reception is reached by following the pavement around to the left and entering the primary building. 

Co-Curricular Clubs

BDA is best known for producing outstanding exam results, but we believe that the secret to a fulfilling and successful time at school lies just as much beyond the classroom as it does within. This is why, every term, we put such time and effort into developing an extensive programme of lunchtime and after-school clubs for students to enjoy.

Our vast range of fun and exciting clubs is designed to provide students with ample opportunity to engage in activities that will help develop key elements of a strong character, such as confidence, control and patience. Our extra-curricular timetable also encourages students to take up hobbies and indulge their interests, and is a great means of fostering the wealth of talent that we have at BDA, while imparting new and useful skills.

With our provision of expert coaches and enthusiastic leaders, students are sure to learn a great deal through their chosen clubs. From scrabble and chess to farming and girls’ football, there really is something for everyone.

So, what better way to immerse oneself in the BDA community and make new friends than to enjoy a common interest together?
