Brighton Aldridge Community Academy


BACA provides various activities, running before school, during breaks and after school. These opportunities enhance and extend the curriculum, motivating students to develop new interests and skills, make new friends, and emphasise students’ social, emotional and physical development.

Students are encouraged to participate in these activities to help them develop a well-rounded set of skills. They can choose to join our many sport teams, along with a number of clubs including; cycling, fitness, guitar, music, drama, creative writing, business, ICT and a range of homework revision clubs.  Please see our BACA Clubs page to find out more.  

Please also see our ‘Beyond the classroom’ page for more information on additional opportunities and experiences on offer to our students.
