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.

We will be delving into Northern Lights (Northern Lights - Book Club Podcast) and The Dark is Rising (The Dark is Rising Podcast), sharing our predictions and talking about our favourite characters (Favourite Characters - Book Club Podcast) that we have met so far in Book Club.

School is back! So is our Radio Club!
