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. 

We Will, We Will Rock You!

All this week the cast of ‘We Will Rock You!’ have been entertaining audiences in the Dennis Potter theatre to rapturous applause.

Based around the famous songs of 80’s pop and rock band ‘Queen’, this year’s musical sent us light-years into the future, to a cyber-world where all live music is banned and the owning of instruments is illegal. It was up to Scaramouche, Galileo and their gang of rebels to ‘break free’, rock out and defeat the evil Killer Queen in true musical theatre style.

It has been a real pleasure to watch this cast work, and they have been incredibly dedicated and enthusiastic. They have put in around six hours rehearsal on top of the normal school week which is truly commendable. They will agree that it has been a lot of fun preparing for this show and the culmination of all their efforts in the final show was testimony to their hard work and talent.

Governor Ken Bromfield Tweeted “The big BDA promise ‘We Will Rock You!’….mission accomplished!”

We are particularly proud of Tamara Kovacevic, a resilient and talented Year 8 student who stepped into the role of Scaramouche just a day before the first performance and who worked tirelessly to prepare for the four performances.

Well done and thank you to all involved; cast, crew, and for those that came to support. Auditions for next year’s musical will be in the summer term so watch this space…
