Headteacher’s Blog 17/01/2020

Hello and welcome to my blog.

Another fantastic week here at Beckfoot Thornton. Looking at where the school was a couple of years ago, to where we are now, it is really pleasing to see how far on our journey to Outstanding we have come.

This week, our Year 13 BTEC students have been working really hard and have sat their BTEC exams.

On Monday, I had the pleasure of meeting Gill Arnold, Bradford Community Champions founder. Gill had very kindly agreed to come and be a guest speaker on the Beckfoot Thornton Radio!

Yesterday,  we welcomed Year 8 Parents and Carers for our Parents Evening. Despite the wet and miserable weather, we had a great turn-out and it was lovely to see you all again.

I am really looking forward to next week! On Tuesday, some of our Year 9 Maths students will be working with the Transformation Trust and KPMG, understanding emerging technology.
On Thursday, some of Year 8 students will be taking part in an enterprise careers day. Students will undertake tasks and practice presenting their ideas to businesses!

Finally, may I apologise for our phone lines being unavailable at various times this week. They are now back up and running.


Mr Richardson
