...as these are BA flights one doesn't even leave the terminal let alone the airport...
It looks like OP will stay in T5, but sometimes you have to change terminals, even if all flights are BA.

Last time I flew, I arrived from Switzerland at T5, but I had to switch to T3 for the flight to Denver. The restaurants and shopping are better in T5 but you can't enter if your ticket says you leave from a different terminal. You have to go to the terminal that matches your boarding pass, get a purple-suited staff member as an escort, and then you can return to T5 but the escort stays with you the whole time. I decided it wasn't worth it for the short layover.

Yes, we flew from T3 on a BA flight to America as well recently. I was surprised when I booked it because I expected to fly from T5 as I thought all BA flights were based out of there nowadays. Obviously not.
