Do we need a big budget for School Radio? 

You don’t need a big budget, you can start out in School Radio with just a starter studio package or you can choose to progress up the studio package ladder if you want more options and a bigger studio.  Did you know you can have a portable studio? or even one specifically for accessibility for students with varied levels of special educational needs? the choice is yours no matter what your school’s budget or requirements.  See our studio range.

I think my school would benefit from a School Radio but I don’t think we have the space or the resources.

You don’t need a lot of space for School Radio and you don’t even need a dedicated area, we can provide portable studios to transport easily around the school.  School Radio is so easy to learn that even a child of five years can learn to use the basics so staff resources are kept to a minimum!  We also provide free training and free lifetime office hour support with the majority of our School Radio packages see more details.

I don’t want to commit to purchasing a School Radio studio just yet – I want to see one in action and get a feel if it is right for our school.  I want our ICT/ Teachers and Head Teacher involved to.

We can provide a free, onsite, no obligation demonstration if you can provide an audience and a date at your school, the pupils are welcomed to try it out too to see how easy it is!  A demonstration takes minutes to set up and would only take an hour of your time.  Visit our site to enquire or arrange a free no obligation demonstration.

What skills do I, or the pupils need to run a School Radio?

You do not need any specific skills to either run or use a School Radio, you just need to have a willingness to learn and be creative!  Visit our ‘case studies’ page to see what other Schools and Academies have produced using their imagination, teamwork, speaking and listening skills and of course School Radio!
