Live Sports Bulletin today at 2pm followed by Work Of The Week in the studio


We kicked off with a live broadcast hosted by 2 of our 6th formers and they were joined in the studio by 3 of our sports leaders who brilliantly delivered a sports bulletin.

We couldn't have asked for a better start, the students excelled and delivered the show with a professional attitude and have done themselves and the school proud.

The radio project team, Mrs Thomas, Mrs Awan and Mr Doak want to extend a huge thanks to the 6th formers for stepping in to give Beckfoot Thornton Radio a voice, the sports leaders too and all the students who have helped create some fabulous podcasts. A special thanks goes to the guests who featured on the JEEP and National Railway Museum podcasts.

So, Monday 13th May was launch day. Mr Richardson was joined by Mrs Morrissey from the Beckfoot Trust for the official opening of Beckfoot Thornton Radio. They met with the project team and the students who had just delivered the broadcast and Mrs Morrissey got to have a look round the studio. Everyone was also treated to some cake as an extra thanks for their efforts in getting the station up and running.

This page will be the home for all things Beckfoot Thornton Radio. You can access the live broadcast and podcasts from here and stay up to date on the projects we will be developing.

We have already got the wheels in motion to bring you weekly broadcasts so do stay tuned and make sure to check back here to keep updated on future content.
