Welcome to Our School

 Welcome to Beechcliffe School's website. 


On behalf of the students, staff and governors we would like to welcome you to our Beechcliffe School website.

David, Michelle and I are thrilled to be leading this fantastic school for the foreseeable future and we are looking forward to building on the excellent work of staff pupils and parents.

Beechcliffe School is a diverse community meeting a wide range of individual needs but within the shared ethos of preparing young people for a happy and successful adulthood. Our staff team have a vast range of skills and expertise, they work diligently to enable our students to become the best version of themselves.

We know that parents and school working together is one of the strongest influences on a young person’s success and happiness and we seek to nurture this partnership throughout a young person’s time with us.

We hope that you enjoy looking at the website and find any information you may require. Should you require any additional information please do not hesitate to contact us and we will help in any way we can.

We would like to say a huge thankyou from the Beechcliffe Bandits.



Some staff members at Beechcliffe School offered to participate in the annual dragon boat festival on Saturday, July 2, 2022. At Roberts Park, they were pushed out of their comfort zones as they competed against other teams from the Bradford area. On the day, they competed in three 200m time trials along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal's Saltaire section, with the goal of having the fastest time to qualify for the final and then win the competition. Non of them have rowed before but were very enthusiastic and keen to win!


The aim was to raise £500.00 for out of school educational visits, but with all your help raised £838.00
