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. 

Careers and Networking Event

A group of BDA students attended a creative careers networking event last month to meet a variety of professionals working in creative industries.

Through conversations with photographers, musicians, journalists, fashion designers and filmmakers, the students learmt a great deal about what such jobs entail and what it takes to forge a career in these areas. They also learnt about the importance of networking and how best to go about it.

The professionals were extremely impressed by the maturity and inquisitiveness of BDA students, who as a result received an invite to a Converse Public Relations event from one of the speakers. Many students approached the trip as a networking opportunity in itself and managed to secure work experience placements for the summer.

Well done to all on what was a very successful day out: Rachel Smith, Fonus Kibreab, Kidest Alemayehu, Andre Curie, Valexus Robinson, Hajar Benmhedia, Darnell Christie, Diana Solomon, Elizabeth Solomon, Raage Egal, Tyra Louis-Pascall and Shazelle Louis-Pascall.
