BDTC is primarily a school which caters for pupils who are excluded from mainstream education. In addition to excluded pupils BDTC also offers the borough's nine secondary schools respite places for pupils who are at risk of permanent exclusion. We also assist the borough with hard to place pupils.
The main aim of the BDTC is to engage all of our pupils with the curriculum and to enable them to become effective learners. Pupils are grouped into mixed age Key Stage 3 or Key Stage 4 groups. Units of work are carefully selected in order to deliver the best programme of study for all pupils. The BDTC offers a range of accredited qualifications which include all core subjects.
The Centre also offers foundation courses in Design Technology, Home Economics, PE and Art. All pupils have access to PSCHE and Citizenship on a weekly basis.
The BDTC also uses outside agencies to develop individualised timetables for those pupils who find it difficult to engage in a classroom setting.
