Stretch

Stretch gives scholars the chance to choose an area of study they would like to investigate further. Scholars work independently under the supervision of a teacher to research and produce a presentation on their area of study. We hold Stretch finals to showcase the best Stretch presentations and we actively encourage parents / carers to attend these events.  Stretch finals are judged by external judges.    

Y10 Stretch finals are slightly different.  As part of our mission to ensure that scholars go on to study at a top University or a real alternative, Y10 finals take the form of an academic conference.  Scholars listen to presentations over a conference-style lunch, engage in table discussions and hear a keynote speech from a high-profile judge, including in the past, the Lord Mayor of Bradford.  

Other Stretch judges to take part and share their expertise include: Mat Latawiec (IT Global Service Desk Manager, Burberry), Judy Collinson (Chief Merchandising Officer, Burberry) Meg Zalewski (Vice President of Product Planning, Burberry), Samantha Attwood (Educational Psychologist), Neil Steeley (HR Manager, XPO Logisitics), Marica Shelbourne (Schools and Colleges Liaison Officer, Huddersfield University), R Spry (Inventory Team Manager, XPO Logistics), Emma Williams (HR Advisor, XPO Logisitcs), Jacqui Ambler (Governor) and H Ismail (Research Fellow, Bradford University).

In the height of #COVID19, I spent 9-months making a film with young people in #Bradford alongside @khidmat_centres @PishdaadC & partners on the youth experience. Many felt ignored, overlooked & unheard. This is the trailer to the upcoming launch film https://t.co/2c7uuOorVp https://t.co/lAJhZ4N0Yh
