A WORKSHOP for pupils at Botwell House Catholic Primary School in Hayes on Wednesday (24) marked the start of a new partnership.

Staff from neighbouring Global Academy gave those in Year 5 and 6 the chance to learn about the creative media world.

They were shown how to use mixing decks and record their own radio show segment on a mini pop-up radio station.

The morning was further enlivened when pupils received promotional gifts. 

Global Academy is a University Technical College, based at the Old Vinyl Factory site, which prepares young people for careers in radio, TV, digital, advertising and social media. It opened in 2016.
