The Manor

We worked with the National Youth Theatre and the BBC to produce an online radio drama which could resource the teaching of Citizenship in an engaging way. Students from Preston Manor High School and Copland Communtiy College (Brent, London) worked to devise, perform and produce 6 episodes. This extract is from the episode exploring homelessness for young people.






•Dramatic Advertisement ( AS Media Studies)

Media Studies A’Level students from Preston Manor High School produced these dramatic radio advertisements for their coursework. Each group produced three for three different stations thereby exploring how media language works for different target audiences.







•3D Drama -Speak Up.

We worked with Soundart Radio, The Grove, Totnes, South Dartmoor Community College, KEVICC, Paignton Community College, Bidwell Brook and Dartmouth Academy running workshops in creative radio making culminating in the students taking over Soundart Radio for 2 days in summer 2012. Students made soundmaps of their schools and 3D dramas. This 3D piece was made by students from Dartmouth Academy and you must wear headphones to get the full effect.
