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. 

House University Challenge

The BDA House Competition took a step into the academic arena this week, testing the general knowledge of staff and students in the aptly difficult House University Challenge.

Hosted by Mr Preston, doing his best Jeremy Paxman impression, the quiz got off to competitive start. The Colossians, led by Ms Bridger, were looking particularly good, but it was the Romans who stormed into the lead early on.

With passions running high and teams falling by the wayside as the rounds progressed, the Galatians, comprising Umar, Aham and Mr Lawrence, found themselves in a head to head with the Philippians team of Adekunle, Madena and Ms Williamson.

Despite a valiant effort from the latter, it was the Galatians who emerged victorious. Well done all on what was an impressive display of knowledge.

Full results were as follows:

1st – Galatians, 2nd – Philippians, 3rd – Colossians, 4th – Romans, 5th – Corinthians, 6th - Ephesians
