On the 7th February 2022, five Year 10 pupils visited the BT Sports Studio in Stratford with Head of Media, Ms Williams and Careers and Progression Mentor, Miss Fredericks. The aim of the visit was to give young people the opportunity to learn about the broadcasting industry as well as understand what it takes to develop a career in broadcasting.

Pupils were given a tour and talk by Jamie Hindhaugh COO of BT Sports, followed by workshops on building a studio and creating a programme concept. Our pupils returned with a better understanding of the breadth of careers in Media and are inspired to do well in their GCSE media course.
