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.
Public Vote in Favour of BDA Student
Fred Gill, Year 12, has won the support of the public and been re-elected as Hammersmith and Fulham’s member of the UK Youth Parliament.
He is charged with the task of providing a voice for local young people on a national scale, ensuring that their interests are heard and considered by the nation’s key decision makers.
He said: “This is such a privilege and a great opportunity for young people to be represented and their voices heard. It’s about pushing forward what we really need and want in our society.”
Fred fought off stiff competition from seven committed opponents in his race to secure his political presence in the area, with a particularly strong challenge launched from Rahima Begum, who has been appointed as Fred’s deputy.
With over 5000 votes cast by the public, Fred’s impressive 880 votes were enough to see him secure victory. He has outlined a political agenda that includes matters of both local and national interest, pledging to improve the relationship that police have with young people in the community and to achieve greater transparency in schools regarding student support finances.
This impressive achievement is a great reflection of his hard work and professional attitude. We are sure that he will continue to represent local young people in the community with care and effectiveness. Well done!
