Welcome to my blog.
It finally feels like summer has arrived!
We have had a very busy week here at Beckfoot Thornton.
Students in Year 11 and Year 13 have continued revising and sitting their exams and this week were joined by students in Year 10!
For Year 10 students, the prospect of mock exams can be quite daunting as they enter unfamiliar territory, but they have been mature and handled it well. It is excellent experience which prepares them for their GCSE year from September.
It's an exciting week for Year 11 next week - their last week in school! To celebrate, after their last science exam on Thursday, we are having a BBQ with music and shirt signing!
Next week, 60 students from Year 8 will be spending the day at Manchester University, while 9 students in Year 9 will be carrying out work experience at the Emmaus Charity shop. We can't wait to hear how they get on.
Next Friday, the 24th of June, school is closed to all students, apart from those in Year 13 who are sitting their exams, as it is a staff training day.
I hope you have a fantastic weekend.
One more week, Year 11 and Year 13. Keep revising!
