Newsletter - Jan 2020

Welcome to the first edition of the Bader Academy monthly newsletter!

This publication newsletter will keep you updated on the exciting progress being made in the lead up to the school opening its doors in Autumn 2020.

Karl O’ Reilly, Executive Headteacher for Bader, commenced in post in September 2019 and has been working with Wilmott Dixon—the company building the school—to look at finalising internal design plans. Karl is also proactively working with Doncaster Council to identify the first cohort of pupils for when the academy opens in the autumn. Recruitment and developing the curriculum are next on the agenda, based on the needs of the confirmed cohort.

The Build

Work has well and truly started on site at Edenthorpe with all of the foundations and steel structure already being completed. What an interesting journey it will be watching the school develop...

A new website has also been developed for the school where all of the latest information on a variety of areas including; the build, recruitment, policies and procedures and information for parents/carers can be found. The website is a work in progress but will be continually updated in light of progress made.


A short questionnaire has been included on the website to invite feedback from all stakeholders on the opening of the new school. If you can spare a couple of minutes, please visit our consultation page as your feedback would be really appreciated.


If you would like more information or have query about the school please get in touch by contacting us.
