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.

Curriculum

Key Stage 4

At Beckfoot, Key Stage Four refers to years 10 and 11.

Students have 25 hours of learning a week. You can see how this is broken down on Our Curriculum Model.

Students also have a designated PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education) session each week. 

All students have personalised pathways that suit their aspirations for life. A variety of enrichment opportunities also help build their confidence, skills and self-esteem.

These pathways include a range of academic and vocational opportunities.

All students study:

· Maths
· English
· Science (Triple or Double)
· Core PE (non-certified)

Students choose three options from:
· History
· Geography
· French
· German
· Religious Education
· Computer Science
· Information Technology
· Enterprise
· Business
· Health
· Art
· Photography
· Graphics
· Textiles
· Hospitality
· Engineering
· Product Design
· PE Btec
· Music
· Music Technology
· Performance Studies

Whilst we do not insist on students following the EBACC pathway, we do encourage this as a route through GCSEs and onto post 16. The majority of students will choose at least one subject from History, Geography, French, German or Computer Science to ensure that they maintain a breadth of study right up to the end of Year 11.

You can get more information about each of the Option subjects on our Options Page.
