BBC Radio 5 Live

Academy hosts the BBC Radio 5 Live team for a tour and broadcast

On Tuesday 20th October, The de Ferrers Academy hosted a visit from the BBC Radio 5 LIve Drive team. The team visited some lessons, spoke with students and teachers and carried out a live broadcast during our busy Sixth Form Open Evening, on the issue of Grammar Schools.

Producer Issy Greenfield said "...thanks ever so much for letting us broadcast in your school. Our editor was really pleased with how it sounded, and our audience seemed to really enjoy it too.

Thank you for letting us into your school and for setting so many things up for us. The kids were fabulous, as were the teachers, and everyone seemed so informed about the topic, so thank you for encouraging them to research beforehand.

If we ever need a friendly school again – you are the first on our list."
