Latest updates from BBA’s principal
The health and wellbeing of our students, staff and the wider school community, is our absolute priority. The Government has changed its advice in relation to self-isolation which has resulted in a significant number of staff being absent. We take our duty of care extremely seriously and every decision is made with the best interests of our students in mind. We have therefore, decided to close the Academy until further notice.
If you have any questions or queries please contact our office email@example.com

Parcels and deliveries to the Academy
Due to the current situation, as you are aware our Academy remains closed until further notice.
There will not be anyone available at the Academy to accept parcels or open the Academy, post is not accessible on any level. As soon as they Academy reopens all post will be distributed accordingly when possible.
Please understand, we are doing everything we can to ensure things will return “back to normal” as soon as they possibly can be.
Working from home
We understand that working from home might not be easy for everyone. We have updated our website to try and make it as easy as possible to work from home, there are tasks and challenges to complete under the section ‘working from home’.
However, we do realise that this may not be easy for everyone. Packs have been posted home to our SEN pupils, and we gave our Year 10 students the opportunity to come and collect their revision packs last week. Any further updates regarding paper revision packs at home will be posted online.
