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 our School

Mr M Ward: Deputy Headteacher

Melvyn Ward is one of our two Quality of Education Deputy Headteachers at Beckfoot Upper Heaton.

Mel is privileged to have worked with our local community for nearly two decades and has been a senior leader at BUH since it joined the Beckfoot Trust. He is proud to work with our colleagues, our young people and their families to ensure that every student leaves BUH equipped with the qualifications, skills and self-belief that open the gateway of opportunity to future success.

Mel has a determination that our school provides a curriculum that is relevant in meeting the needs of all students; it builds their cultural capital, motivates and excites.
