On Tuesday 26th June, 16 of our students represented Beckfoot Thornton in the Beckfoot Trust Sports Day.
The students were a credit to the PE department and the school as their effort and attitude was superb (even with the intense heat!).
Mr Horn, CEO of the Beckfoot Trust was very impressed with how smart the students looked and how well they interacted with everyone else at the event.
As a reward, the students have been issued with a sports tie and I will be meeting with them on Monday morning at break, to congratulate them personally and to enjoy a bun and a drink.
Well done to the following Year 7 students that took part:
Harrison, Abdussalam, Ryley, Billy, Anthony, Edward, Zayn, Honie, Millie, Simran, Ruby, Olivia, Zara, Isobel and Holly.
Next week marks the end of the current exam series. Students have worked really hard and have remained enthusiastic and focused throughout.
Our new Year 11 students will be starting to consider their future career paths and the qualifications they need in order to achieve their ambitions.
Finally, at pick up and drop off times particularly, Leaventhorpe Lane gets very congested with buses, taxi's and students.
Could I please ask that in order to reduce the risk to children, could parents kindly collect children from the school side of Thornton Road.
