On the 15th September (a very hot day) I fainted at the bus stop by your school. Your students were very kind to me - picked me up and made sure I was alright. As they got off the bus, each one asked me if I was feeling better.

One student got off at the same stop as me and walked with me to my daughter's house in Scarborough Rd. She was an A level student and lived in Avondale Crescent. How very thoughtful these students were. I was so very grateful for their help.

Examples like this make us so proud of our students both in school and the wider community, true Beckfooters!
