Radio for Schools

“We are now offering radio broadcasting NPA as a study option for 5th and 6th years from next term.”

Jim Yuille, Headteacher, Carluke High School

What is it?

What is included in the package?

  • Friendly, local and professional service
  • Support, advice and purchase of radio broadcast equipment to fit your budget requirements
  • Installation of studio equipment
  • Installation of PA speakers and connectivity between the studio remote speakers or other locations
  • Bespoke training sessions & packages for staff and pupils, based on your aspirations and budget
  • Aftercare support
  • Guidance to link into National Progression Awards (NPAs)

Why would your school want a radio station?

There is a whole bank of reasons and benefits to having one - here are just a few:

  • Live broadcasts in school (at lunchtime via provided speakers, via the internet, even FM!)
  • Development of presentation skills & literacy development
  • Development of ICT skills
  • Learning audio production skills
  • Development of creative thinking / writing skills
  • Development of interview skills
  • Development of planning skills
  • Encourages teamwork
  • Promotes inclusion
  • Raises the profile of your school
  • Supports development of journalism skills
  • and plenty more! 

Support is provided on a flexible & ongoing basis until the set-up is satisfactory and fit for purpose.
