    Headteacher's Blog

    Welcome to my blog page. Here you can find out a bit more information about what is happening at Beckfoot Thornton.

    Last term ended on a high note with a Christmas production that played to a packed hall. Over 100 talented students put on a great show for parents, friends, relatives and local residents.

    With a much more settled community and happier students, Year 11 were able to concentrate on their studies, and their mock exams results in November were much better than those from their June exams.

    Improvements to academic progress were matched by sporting success, with over 200 of our students representing the school in a wide range of fixtures last term.

    We have made a very positive start to the New Year and have high aspirations for 2018. Our students’ attitudes to learning have improved; we have given out five times as many rewards for good behaviour as we have sanctions for negative.. . . long may this continue!

    Watch this space for exciting information about a revision conference at half term for Year 11.
