Students enjoy work experience at Eagle Radio

Six School students (Charlie, Marc, Nic, Lucy, Connor and David) have recently completed educational and work related workshops at Eagle Radio in Guildford. This was the first time that the School has worked with Eagle Radio who made adaptions to enable the students to access the studio. Students completed six sessions and have developed new skills including interviewing techniques (they all interviewed Wes Venn), creating adverts, learning about target audience and how to prepare for a radio show. They all spent time in the recording studio and all enjoyed a celebratory session with Gemma King. All six students have created their own radio show and will shortly be receiving a CD with all of their work.
