Beckfoot Trust is an organisation that links a group of local Bradford schools together so that they can collectively improve the life chances for young people within their schools. Our aim is to create a group of truly remarkable schools each with a genuine comprehensive intake. They will be wonderful places for young people to learn and grow up in. We want to make a difference. We want to create something special.

Headteacher's Blog 22/10/2021

Welcome to my blog.
Wow! What a fantastic first half-term we have had back.
It has been a tough 7 weeks, but our students have pushed on relentlessly! 
I have been thoroughly impressed with all of our students. They have all looked so smart, behaved well and really engaged with their learning. Getting used to not being in bubbles, not having to wear masks, and familiarising themselves with the one-way system and split lunches is no mean feat!
It has taken a while for us all to get back into the swing of things, but I think we have cracked it!
When we return after the holidays, students in Year 11 will be sitting their mock examinations for the first two weeks. We also have a new set of extra-curricular PE sessions that will be running after school:
School is now closed for the half-term holiday. We will re-open to all students on Monday 1st November 2021.
I hope that everyone has a fantastic break, a well-earned rest and that students return refreshed and re-invigorated.
Mr Richardson
