Here are what schools have said about the Schools Radio Network and our broadcast radio courses and projects.

Queenswood School
(Listen to their radio here: http://schoolsradio.net/Queenswood) – Broadcasting for Schools weekly radio project.

Queenswood School has been working with Schools Radio Network since September 2014. Our students have really embraced the opportunity to put together and broadcast their own weekly show under the expert guidance of Martin Steers. Each session is extremely well planned, with just the right balance of tuition and hands-on experience. The broadcasts are always transmitted with perfect punctuality, and we are starting to build up an impressive archive of podcasts which are available permanently via Soundcloud and our own school website.

The girls love having the chance to interview their friends, staff and visitors to the school about the issues of the day, and particularly enjoy choosing their own music to broadcast.

The project has opened up exciting new possibilities for our school and students, several of whom have expressed an interest in pursuing a future career in radio. If you have pupils looking for a new creative outlet, I strongly recommend Schools Radio Network.

The Reach Free School
(Listen to their radio here: http://schoolsradio.net/TheReachFreeSchool) – Broadcasting for Schools weekly radio project for Half Term.

Sessions have been informative, engaging and fun for all of our pupils and the progress they have made over the weeks has been very easy to see (and hear!). The neat structure to each session allows pupils to understand different aspects of radio production and then put their learning into action immediately. Martin is extremely knowledgeable about the industry and is able to work with all pupils to develop their skills and confidence in presenting. I was very pleased with the programme and look forward to working with Martin again in the future.
