    Headteacher's Blog

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

    It has been a busy couple of weeks.....


    We have seen sporting success in the form of victories for the girls’ football and basketball teams over some strong opposition. The girls were a credit to the school.

    Year 12 students have returned to school following a week of work experience where they learned more about the world of work and the expectations of employers. Year 12 art students also had a great time at the South Square Centre.

    Mr Halliley gave some moving assemblies about the Holocaust in a week that included Holocaust Memorial Day.

    A former student who plays for the Bradford Bulls has become a regular visitor to school working with some of our younger boys on their attendance and behaviour.

    Looking forward, we have organised a Year 11 revision conference over half term and invited students who need some extra help to prepare for their mock exams that start when we return after the holiday.

    We have started a weekly ‘Headteacher’s award’ where teachers nominate students who have produced exceptional work. These students meet me at break on a Friday for refreshments and have their work framed and displayed in the hall. It is also put on this website so you can view it.
