6 Post 16 students, Mr Stanley and Mr Kearney visited Salford Quays to go and see how various BBC programmes work behind the scenes. Our BBC School Media Partner Katie Walderman, who is one of the BBC presenters, was our host and we sat in during the production of the 1:30pm News Bulletin on North West Today. We then had opportunities to meet the presenter, Annabel Tiffin and she talked to the group about what it is like to present the show. Finally we had a full tour of the BBC Sport Studios and opportunities to watch the Sports Bulletin being produced as well as a talk from one of the main BBC Sport presenters.
It was a fantastic day and the students were excellent ambassadors for the school. We have been invited to take further groups up to Salford in the New Year and Katie will be visiting to conduct some Media workshops in the build up to BBC School Report Day in 2018. Thanks to Mr Stanley for making sure we could attend by driving the bus.
