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.

ShazsStudioPic-WEBIt is with great sadness that we have said goodbye to Shazia, our initial radio program developer.

Using her experience of being a presenter on Bradford’s BCB radio, Shazia brought some of the radio magic to our students, and it really showed in our productions.

Forever helpful and keen to give our students a taste of radio, THO Radio blossomed and became a part of school life with regular and weekly instalments documenting the many exciting activities and success stories of our students.

Plus, many special guests, all interviewed by pupils under Shazia’s expert guidance, they really did become confident communicators, many of them becoming recurring hosts and all those involved, made strides in developing their conversational skills.

Shazia, we thank you for your time and contributions and all the best in your future endeavours.
