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. 

Bloomberg Mentoring Scheme

A group of Year 10 students recently visited Bloomberg’s central London offices to take part in the first session of this year’s Bloomberg Mentoring Scheme.

The programme, now in its third year, sees students from BDA assigned a mentor from the finance company to help develop CV writing, interview techniques and other valuable employment skills.

Competition for places was tough, with over 60 applications submitted. Congratulations to the final 15 selected by Ms Aiken, Mr Woodruff and Mr Perkins.
