Blackpool FC School

Welcome to our school. I am privileged to be the Head at BFC School and have been in post since July 2021. This is a school with exceptional character and warmth, which you can sense when you visit.

A school that puts our students at the heart of everything we do to ensure a nurturing environment to instil confidence and belief in all of our students.

My mission as Head is to ensure that this school will continue to grow to be a truly inclusive and restorative organisation that strives to meet the needs of every individual. We are a dedicated team of staff who have built a school centred around excellent relationships and the desire to bring our very best each day.

The role of a Head of School is a challenging one and whilst I take the lead for our school the very best part of my day is spent working with our students and our incredible staff team. I want everyone to enjoy learning here – staff and students alike. As a school we aim to constantly improve in all that we do, evolving our offer to meet the ever-changing educational landscape in Blackpool. We are committed to being the best that we can be – that’s what it means to be part of BFC School.

I believe for our students to be successful we must engage and support parents and guardians to ensure the values instilled in school are reflected when at home and out in the community.

We believe that our listening culture enriches the educational experience for our students, creating an environment built on respect, and supporting the aspirations of all our students.

Our website gives a flavour of our school, but the only way to really get a sense of what our school is about is to visit us. You will be warmly welcomed.

Gemma Trickett – Head of School – Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator (SENCO)

BFC School is an appropriate provision for students in Year 10 and Year 11, situated at Blackpool FC Stadium, Bloomfield Road. We work with young people for who smaller class sizes and personalised curriculums allow them to achieve their goals.

The school is a full-time provision offering a curriculum provision to enhance essential academic skills, whilst also providing students with a range of opportunities and experiences focused on personal development and wellbeing.

Providing wide-ranging experiences and opportunities to learn for students of all abilities, we develop skills in a secure, happy, and stimulating environment. Our project-based learning opportunities encourage our students to gain understanding of the community and world they live in and become aware of their responsibilities within this.

We encourage all of our students gain knowledge, qualifications, and skills relevant to adult life and employment in a rapidly changing world.
