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. 

Debaters at Downing Street

Ms Forsyth: BDA's debaters were invited on a tour of the Houses of Parliament and Downing Street by George Osborne after impressing him at a debate in which his son was competing.

We had a very interesting tour by a member of George Osborne's office and felt like VIPs when we walked past the queue of people outside Downing Street and went straight in!

The students learnt a lot during the trip and made the most of the expert on hand who in an email to me afterwards said: "I thoroughly enjoyed it myself, particularly their questions!"
