Pod Radio

September 2017 saw the official launch of our community digital radio station, “Pod Radio”. Our students broadcast live from our HQ in Quadrant House, Sutton, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Our shows cover a variety of topics from movies and video games to news and current affairs. You can tune in and listen to our podcasts at www.spreaker.com/user/sharespace.

Pod Radio is accessible to all of our students, they can either visit the Pod in Quadrant House or access it remotely. The benefits are numerous, from team working and improved communication skills to increased confidence and self-esteem.

We have already engaged with some podcast gurus in music, media and sport, and are looking forward to welcoming lots more special guests, so stay tuned.

If you would like to get involved with Pod Radio and feature as one of our special guests, please get in touch.

This is a very exciting and pivotal moment in the lives of St Dominic’s, Brantridge and Grafham Grange schools.  Academy conversion under the sponsorship of OHC&AT will help secure their futures and, no doubt, lead to better outcomes for pupils and students, families and carers, staff and all stakeholders.   We are looking forward to a bright future as part of the OHC&AT family.

Ken Cowdery, Chair of Governors
