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.

Update May 6th 2022

Beckfoot Thornton Radio is back!!

It is also time to welcome our new radio team members, Ms Donald and Miss Tariq from the English department. 

Kicking off with 3 podcasts on positivity that have been worked on over the last few weeks in the new radio club.

Now, a message from Ms Donald and Miss Tariq: -

Hi all, 

We are excited to announce that we will now be leading the school Radio and will be looking to recruit a panel of enthusiastic students to help run our programs. We have lots of exciting ideas that we want you all to become a part of.  

We can’t wait to get involved with the school Radio because we see this as a fantastic space for you to share your voices, explore your opinions, learn from each other, and celebrate that which you are proud of. One of the greatest strengths of Beckfoot Thornton is our diversity and what better way to recognise this than a space where we get to hear from so many of you. ​Often in class, we have all experienced getting caught up in an exciting conversation, perhaps about something newly released, perhaps something that is happening soon, or something more political and significant. We envision the Radio to become a platform where we don't have to cut these discussions short, but instead explore why they matter. We want this to also be a platform that recognises and celebrates all of your proudest moments, all of the challenges you have overcome and achievements you accomplish both academically, and outside of school.  

We will be looking for a diverse range of students to help host our Radio and to become trained up for various roles to run the station. We realise that finding your voice and sharing your thoughts to an audience can be daunting for some, but whilst being in a room of a small number of people and through planning our programs thoroughly, we know we will see so many of you flourish further into confident communicators. You'll also learn what becoming a Radio presenter entails and learn the importance and the impact of media. 

We will be in touch soon about how the Radio will run this year, and what you can each do to support our community Radio.
