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. 

Sixth Formers Depart for India

BDA Sixth Form students are today heading off for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, visiting one of the world’s most vibrant and fascinating countries, India.

As well as taking in the spectacular sights, sounds and tastes of the nation, the group will be dedicating a great deal of time to working with SKSN, a residential school that supports the needs of children affected by polio.

The students, led by Miss Stone, will arrive at their hotel this evening and spend the next two days exploring central Delhi before travelling by one of India’s renowned overnight trains to SKSN. They will stay with the organisation until the 27th, where they will teach and also have the chance to sightsee in the city of Jodhpur. They will return to Delhi on the 28th and depart for the UK on the 29th.

We wish them all the best on what is sure to be an unforgettable experience for everybody concerned. See Academy News in the coming weeks for a report on the group’s activities.
