We understand that the transition from primary school to secondary school is a very important stage in a child’s education. For that reason, Beckfoot Thornton offers a comprehensive Transition Programme for all children joining the school.

Transition 2018-19

We are very pleased to be able to offer your child a 3 day induction at Beckfoot Thornton this year.
This will run on July 4th, 5th, 6th from 8.30am in the morning until 2.00pm in the afternoon. We require you to send your child with a packed lunch for the full 3 days. If you are in receipt of free school meals, please speak with your primary schools.
Over the 3 days your child will meet their form tutor and take part in a number of exciting activities.
Please ensure you pick your child up or send your child with a note allowing them to walk home or contact the year team to authorise this.

For parents, we are hosting an evening on Monday 2nd July - please arrive for your child's primary school slot.
You will be able to meet most of the form tutors, the year team and the senior leadership of the school as well as experience a small selection of food from our canteen menu.
Some parking will be available on the school site, if you are unable to park on the school grounds please be mindful of our neighbours on Leaventhorpe Lane and park with care.

If you are unable to make this we are also hosting Wednesday 4th July a 1 hr Q&A session 5-6pm with senior leadership.

On Friday 6th July we are inviting parents to come and see what their children have been busily working on during their time with us.
This will take place from 1.15pm until 2.00pm.
You will receive more details about this closer to the time, but please be aware that due to the event taking place in our sports hall, heeled shoes will not be allowed unfortunately as they damage the floor.

We look forward to welcoming you to Beckfoot Thornton in July.
