Hello and welcome back.

I hope that you enjoyed a restful break.

Today, some of our finest sporting students have made their way to Hanson Academy to represent Beckfoot Thornton in the Bradford Winter Games.

Students will be taking part in a range of competitions including under 16’s boys basketball, under 14’s girls basketball and Year 8 Sports hall athletics. Our student Sports Leaders have been fantastic in organising the running of the event.

I wish all of the competitors the very best of luck and will update you on the results later this week!

On Wednesday this week, the first Beckfoot Trust Student Conference will be held at Beckfoot Oakbank.


Student representatives from Beckfoot Thornton will work collaboratively to share their views on learning with Generation Z so that our community can better understand how all our students can enjoy, learn and succeed. 


Their views will be used to inform the creation of the new Beckfoot Trust Strategic Vision alongside those gathered from staff at the recent Beckfoot Trust Conference attended by over 700 colleagues. 

Good luck to all Year 11 and Year 13 students that have started their mock exams today.


Mr Richardson
