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 from the Headteacher

DSC_0177Welcome to Beckfoot Upper Heaton.

Graeme WrightsonWe are a Beckfoot Trust school and we passionately believe students come first. We strive to maximise the undoubted talents of our incredible students, who learn within a caring and supportive community.

In March 2018 we were judged by Ofsted to be Good in all areas and are incredibly ambitious to become truly remarkable. Our enthusiastic, dedicated and skilled staff have played a crucial role in the school’s success since opening in September 2015; all staff work collaboratively so that no child gets left behind.

We have a fully inclusive curriculum, focusing on the development of key skills such as literacy and numeracy that enable all of our students to achieve their full potential. We place great emphasis on ensuring high quality Teaching and Learning as well as providing our students with exciting opportunities outside of an academic setting. We instil a love of learning inspired by high quality teaching, which develops individual strengths and talents. We encourage and celebrate creativity, original thinking, imagination, effort and achievement. This encourages confident and aspirational learners to thrive.

Supporting, guiding, nurturing and developing our fantastic young people is of paramount importance to every member of our school community. In return, we expect students to display an excellent attitude to learning, creating positive and tolerant relationships. We respect the traditional values of hard work, good manners, and self-discipline so that we Enjoy - Learn - Succeed together.

We care deeply about our students and approach each day with a commitment to ensure we give them the best ‘whole school’ experience possible. This is enhanced by our state of the art building which we moved into in January 2017. Our facilities help students immerse themselves in a wide variety of after school clubs and activities from sport to musical recitals.

We have a desire to develop leadership at all levels inclusive of our young people. The Beckfoot Upper Heaton Student Leader Group are elected by, and represent, their fellow students and are at the heart of effecting change in school. We listen to what our students tell us.

Being part of the Beckfoot Trust allows us many opportunities to work in partnership with nine other Bradford schools, thus widening our community. Students in each Trust school gain a wealth of experience, thus increasing their future prospects in an ever changing world.

To conclude, we are relentless in our ambition for our students, our staff and our Trust. We believe in community. We believe great things can happen. We believe in every child.
