Star Students: Our Year 7s on the Radio!

On Tuesday 15th September, Pirate FM pitched up their mobile ‘studio’ just outside The Core to broadcast live from the school for the day.

Lead by presenter Scott Temple, the team were excited to get a taste of the day to day life of students at Penrice Academy and spoke to a range of members of the school community, including students, teachers, trainees and even Harvey the Dog. Among those who featured live on the radio were some of our brilliant new Year 7s, who told Scott all about their first fortnight at the school.

Carlotta, Anoushka, Karon, Niamh, Max, Freja, Jessie, Taylor, Patrick, Mia and Bethany, from 7GA, jumped at the chance to represent their new school, with Scott commenting on how polite and welcoming they all were.

Their Form Tutor, Miss Andrews, has nominated them to be this week’s Star Students. She said: “Wow! What a fantastic start to the year. Students from 7GA were so happy and excited about their first week at Penrice that they wanted to share some of what they’ve done so far with Scott from Pirate FM and they did so well!”
