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.

    The first week of the GCSE exams has gone very well. The mock exams have done their work in preparing students for these crucial public exams.
    Ramadan also started this week. We are here to support our student's through this important holy time.

    With Year 10 Mocks due to start on Monday 18th June, this is a pivotal time for our current Year 10. Students will be taking part in a revision day next week to help them prepare for these important exams. They will be taking part in five carefully planned workshops on how to revise. These include preparation for the core subjects of English, Maths and Science, as well as learning different revision techniques, which we want them to utilise successfully ahead of their exams.
    Year 10 will be sitting their GCSEs this time next year and the time will really fly. Therefore, as a school, we want to maintain our positive momentum and ensure that these students are on course to achieve great results in the summer of 2019!

    Finally, I have attached some photo's from our Duke of Edinburgh practice trip to Black Hills. Staff and student's alike had a great time!
