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. 

BDA's Got Talent

A diverse troupe of acts from across the year groups took to the Dennis Potter stage on Wednesday for the latest instalment of BDA’s Got Talent.

As ever, the programme offered an eclectic bunch of performances, including a magician, a range of dancers, plenty of singers, and a rap and beatboxing group.

Congratulations to Joshua Barredo (Ephesians), a veteran of BDA talent contests, who’s moving acoustic and vocal performance did enough to secure first place.

Daniela Santacruz and Ibtissam Dahdouh (Romans and Philippians) came in second while Ibtissam Dahdouh (Romans), who’s magic tricks were a highlight of the show, was awarded third.

The event, professionally hosted by Dyon Wildman, was judged by Ms Aitken, Mr Fairbairn, the notoriously harsh Mr Prout, and a representative from Let Me Play – who very kindly gave up his time to help out. Thanks to everyone for coming, we look forward to next year.
