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. 

Economics Trips to LSE

Students from years 9 and 10 have been learning about the ins and outs of life at Russell Group universities on trips to the London School of Economics this week.

A group of 23 Year 10 students travelled to Holborn with Ms Ingr on Tuesday afternoon for a seminar at the world-famous institution, exploring aspects of higher education that they might not have considered.

The group looked at a selection of courses on offer at UK universities and took some time to think about which subjects they might be best suited for. They also had the opportunity to interrogate current LSE students about their experiences of studying in central London.

More than just thinking about the academic side of life after school, the group considered other essential facets of independence, such as money management. They played a Monopoly-esque game developed by LSE entitled Freshers Fortunes, which helped them understand just how big a bite certain activities will take from a budget.

After a quick tour of the site the students headed back to BDA, armed with some essential knowledge for when it comes to making the big decisions that lie ahead. Year 9 enjoyed their trip to LSE on Friday afternoon.
