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. 

Year 7 on First BDA Camping Trip

An excited group of year 7 students embarked on their first ever BDA camping trip this week, heading off on Monday for two nights roughing it in the New Forest. 

They were kept busy during the days with a packed programme of outdoor activities, including archery, abseiling, bush craft and hiking, not to mention plenty of games.

The staff who attended commented on what a pleasure the trip was and praised the group’s excellent behaviour. A few students also had one or two things to say:

Kaiyahn said: “I have really enjoyed playing games in the forest with everyone!”

Robel said: “I loved the spaghetti bolognese!”

Mark said: “I love camping and want to go again!”
