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.

Who are we?

In Beckfoot Trust we understand that all healthy organisations have absolute clarity of purpose. Through precision of language, we are liberated to work together in an efficient and agile way as high performing teams. For collective efficacy to have impact, we need a shared language and understanding. To aid our clarity, we have answered 4 critical questions:
