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.
Portuguese Minister visits BDA
Portuguese Minister of Education Nuno Crato paid a visit to Burlington Danes Academy on Wednesday.
The university professor, researcher, mathematician, economist and writer – appointed a cabinet member in 2011 – toured the school and spoke with Dame Sally about the strategies that have contributed to BDA’s success.
He took time out to pose for a photo with a few of BDA’s Portuguese students and was full of praise for the academy.
Mr Crato even invited Dame Sally to Portugal to see how schools are run over there.
