Portuguese Minister visits BDA

Portuguese Minister of Education Nuno Crato paid a visit to Burlington Danes Academy on Wednesday.

The university professor, researcher, mathematician, economist and writer – appointed a cabinet member in 2011 – toured the school and spoke with Dame Sally about the strategies that have contributed to BDA’s success.

He took time out to pose for a photo with a few of BDA’s Portuguese students and was full of praise for the academy.

Mr Crato even invited Dame Sally to Portugal to see how schools are run over there.
