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. 

Literacy Squad at ARK Brunel

BDA’s busy Literacy Squad joined students at the lovely ARK Brunel Primary Academy last week to help out with various World Book Day activities.

Having ventured into the playground at lunchtime, catching a glimpse of some amazing literature-themed costumes, the group were split up and assigned to separate classes, ranging from nursery right through to year six.

They assisted pupils with cover designing, blurb writing, group reading and poster making, relishing the opportunity to share a little of their passion for literature.

Alice Simpson, who was with year five, said: “What I enjoyed most was just sitting and talking with the students, they were really nice.”

Mr Cooke said: “We were made to feel extremely welcome and the work that the students did was greatly appreciated. It was a very enriching and enjoyable afternoon for all concerned.”

Well done to: Reece Healy-Elliman, Alice Simpson, Hamdi Abdulkadir, Jai Patel, Abdullahi Dahir, Aishni Mittra, Muna Haji, Juliana Vilela and Daniel Blackburn; all of whom were fantastic ambassadors for Burlington Danes Academy.
