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.

Please find below our assembly on Student Expectations and Uniform. 

Detailed examples of Uniform can be found in this link - Uniform Guidance with examples

Please let us know if you have any questions at all. 

The branded uniform (polo shirt, jumper and PE kit) is available from Whittaker’s Schoolwear and Top Trends in Keighley. All other Uniform is available to purchase in supermarkets and other clothing shops both in person and online. We have a uniform swap shop which students or families can use. Ask Wellbeing team or Year team to refer on. There are social media and other trading platforms where pre-used uniform can be obtained. We welcome anything which reduces the environmental impact and the financial burden of school uniform. Our students wear their uniform proudly showing their belonging to Beckfoot Oakbank.
