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 Hijack Year 9 Class

A troupe of talented BDA sixth formers hijacked a Year 9 geography class on Wednesday afternoon, teaching students all about development.

The group prepared a stimulating lesson, complete with excellent resources, for the eager Year 9s to sink their teeth into.

Looking at political, economic, social and historical factors, the class had to decide which category holds the greatest sway when it comes to a country’s development. Once this was established they split into groups and a passionate debate ensued.

Well done to Alabama Nutt and Ryan Tasker for some excellent contributions, but particular thanks must be said to the sixth formers for what was a fantastic session.
