Abbey Park School Radio is our own in-house radio facility run by students from across the school and the Computing and Media Studies department, It began in 2010 when it was opened by Heart radio’s breakfast DJ’s at the time, Jez and Roo.
The station provides an opportunity for students to see what it is like to work in a real radio studio and can be used as a tool to help promote upcoming events in school.
In 2013, the BBC Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw visited Abbey Park School and the radio students were interviewed by Grimmy live on-air. Students in the past have also worked on projects with BBC Wiltshire. Some students have even used the experience of working with the Abbey Park Radio to go on to work at Swindon’s community radio, Swindon 105.5.
The latest project for Abbey Park Radio is to create Podcast to be aired on the Abbey Park School website. Coming soon.
