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 8 Horse Riding Lessons

A group of brave year 8 students have been attending horse riding lessons at the Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre. A prize-giving ceremony on Tuesday morning saw them receive awards and commendations in recognition of the skills they have acquired over the last few weeks.

The five schools involved in the sessions have been in friendly competition with one another, with BDA managing a very impressive second place overall. The students collected their awards from the Pearly King and Queen of Newham – a tradition of old London culture.

Mrs Schulkes said: “The students were all really well behaved and they did extremely well in the lessons. They all had great fun at the centre.”
