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 Summer Fayre - This Friday

The BDA Summer Fayre has gone from strength to strength in recent years, forging a reputation for being one academy event that you really don’t want to miss.

This year’s fayre kicks off on Friday July 4th at 1.30pm and will continue through until about 4.30pm. Staff and students will be running a selection of stalls, ranging from bric-a-brac sales to tombola and henna tattooing, to raise money for charity.

There will be House points available for students who contribute prizes and donate books, toys and other items to hampers in the main reception. There will also be points awarded to the stall that collects the most money.

An entertainment stage is set to host a line-up of top BDA talent throughout the afternoon and there will, of course, be all kinds of refreshments available.

Last year’s event was without doubt the best we’ve seen, raising over £1000, but we hope to surpass that success next Friday. We look forward to seeing you there.
