BACA Open Evening 2014

BACA Open Evening 2014

On Wednesday 17 September, prospective students and their families were welcomed to BACA for a fun evening of meeting students and staff, taking part in engaging activities across all subjects areas and learning more about the Academy.

Our Principal, Mr Davies, gave two presentations during the evening and was welcomed to the stage by BACA’s rising music stars for each talk.  First, from year 11, Annabel gave an outstanding performance of ‘If I Ain’t Got You’ that rivalled Alicia Key’s herself.  For the second performance year 11 boy band Blazer Squad rocked the stage.  Mr Davies shared BACA's vision and the road ahead, looking at recent exam success and how we plan to build on this in the future.  He was joined on stage by Catherine, from year 10, who told the audience about all of the exciting things she’s done at BACA and then a short video clip showed Chloe, from year 8, and her Mum talk about their experience transitioning from primary school –
