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.

Welcome to my blog.
Another fantastic week has taken place at Beckfoot Thornton. December is on the horizon...along with the prospect of some snow!
As you will be aware, as we are now getting into winter, there may be occasions where the school site has to close due to poor weather. 

In the event of school being closed due to inclement weather, parents/carers will be notified via MyEd and the school website as early as possible. Lessons will be posted on Teams so that students can continue their studies. 

In addition, information about school closures will also be available at the Bradford Schools Online (BSO) address below: 

Parents and carers are advised to visit the Metro website below to check if school buses are running: 

Please ensure that students are dressed for the winter weather; coats, gloves, scarves and sensible footwear. 

As part of their Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) award, earlier this week, students in Year 9 worked with Emmaus, a UK charity that work to end homelessness.  Students that undertake the DofE, have the opportunity to explore who they are, grow in confidence and develop their skills, allowing them to successfully navigate through life.

On Tuesday, we were delighted to welcome Bradford College who came to speak to Year 11 about what they can offer students after they have finished their studying here. It was a really useful session.

I was very happy to receive a letter this week from Thornton Royal British Legion advising us that our Poppy Appeal this year raised £173.80! Thank you to everyone that bought a poppy.


Next week, we are looking forward to welcoming the families of our Year 11 students for the Year 11 parents' evening on Thursday 2nd December.

Enjoy the weekend.
