Our Year 7 Football Team represented the school in the Bradford Schools Final last night, beating Grange 3-0 and Immanuel 1-0 to get there.
Unfortunately a strong St Bedes side pipped us to a 1-0 defeat in the final, however the boys played extremely well and were a credit to the school. It was a privilege to host the final here at Beckfoot Thornton, and great to see how much the facilities we have here are valued by the wider community.
Well done to the Year 7 Football Team!
Congratulations to our Year 11 GCSE Food & Nutrition students. This week they all cooked and served a four course meal that they designed themselves. Other students and staff were able to taste the food which was delicious.
As you may know, the school is changing the time when students start GCSEs from Year 10 to Year 9. This means that we have to run an options process for our Year 8 students. In order to for this to happen we have needed to bring the Year 8 parents’ evening forward to Thursday 26th January, which was the date of the timetabled Y10 parents’ evening.
As a result, we have had to move the Year 10 parents’ evening back to Thursday 16th February.
I apologise for the fact that we are only just contacting you about this change but unfortunately, there was a breakdown in our systems and the initial communication about this change was not sent to you earlier.
This year we have introduced a new online booking system for parents evening and 2 weeks before the evening you will be receiving an email with details about how to log on to our system to make appointments with staff.
Please accept my apologies for our the lateness of our communication and we look forward to seeing you on Thursday 16th February
Congratulations to Freya and Cerys who have won the Year 9 History homework competition with two fantastic pieces of work (a scrapbook and a grave memorial). They win a free four day trip to the WW1 battlefields in France and Belgium as part of a government scheme.
A Polite Reminder Re ParentPay
Please remember to monitory your ParentPay balance and ensure sufficient lunch monies are available if your child uses the canteen.
Your understanding and co-operation are greatly appreciated during this period of transition to our new cashless system.

We are very proud to display our year 11 work in each of the Art rooms, please come and have a look.
Year 11 students have worked extremely hard this year to prepare for their Art Mock exams. They worked from two themes: either ‘Still Life’ or ‘Portrait’, and during the preparation period which started in September, students studied artists’ techniques, improved their drawing and painting skills, explored themes, took photographs and collected images that they then drew and painted from. Those that did well practised a great deal at home and during the after school workshops.
Well Done year 11 your hard work and dedication can be seen in your results.
