Student Leadership

    Headteacher's Blog

    Welcome to my blog page. Here you can find out a bit more information about what is happening at Beckfoot Thornton.

    What a fantastic term we have had at Beckfoot Thornton!

    Here are just some of the great events that having been going on:


    Year 11 have received their mock exam results and we can see big improvements in the grades they have achieved.

    In order to help Year 11 students to study during the holidays, they have each been given a SAM learning login and password.


    Some of our Year 8 students have returned from  a day at Worcester College at Oxford University, as part of the Brilliant Club "Raising Aspirations Programme".

    The students had a great time and saw the opportunities that a good education can provide. A tutor from Worcester College will be visiting the school next term.


    Students with good attendance and exemplary behaviour were rewarded with a celebration disco at the Bradford Bulls Stadium. The students beat the teachers in the dance off!


    We are actively recruiting casual exam invigilators and a part time caretaker. If you, or anyone that you know may be interested, please take a look at the recruitment section of the school website.


    As the term draws to an end, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter Holiday.

    I look forward to greeting your children on Monday 16th April at 8.15am.
