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. 

Charity Bake Sale

Staff and students at BDA have been selling delicious baked goods to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

Having flooded the school with plenty of delicious treats, the fundraisers have donated in excess of £185 to the charity. Contributions can still be made to Ms Smith in the KS4 Office.

Thank you to everyone involved.
