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. 

Schools Minister Drops in on BDA

Schools minister David Laws took time during his busy schedule to visit BDA this week. The high-profile Lib Dem popped in for a chat with Dame Sally about assessment, before quickly touring the school and dropping in on a few a classes.

Dame Sally said: “I was very pleased to see Mr Laws. He is interested in looking at our systems and how we manage to do so well. He was really impressed with the school.”
