We literally wrote the book on it!

Making School Radio programs can be very educational and fun, but if you are new to radio in general, where do you start?

In order to help our School Radio customers get started on their first content and support them with ideas for future School Radio shows, we have written a handy guide book that will walk you through the technical and creative aspects of planning, writing and recording your first School Radio show.

The book also includes some sample of resources to give you ideas for future content.

Every School Radio Studio Package includes a free printed copy of this book.

But you can also download a free PDF copy or even order additional soft or hardback printed copies from Amazon using the buttons below.

School Radio and the National Curriculum

Aside from being a lot of fun, School Radio also helps schools and academies to supplement learning and meet the National Curriculum in ways that you may not even realise. It’s also a great way to keep staff, student and parents/guardians alike updated with school life.

To help demonstrate this we have broken down the National Curriculum into several bite-size chunks and explained specifically how this can be applied in your school.  For a summary page document please click here or see below for more detailed documents specific to subjects.

Please click on the relevant links below and save the PDFs for future reference.

In addition, we have also produced a fully annotated version of the National Curriculum, which includes over 106 notes on how School Radio can help to achieve a majority of the National Curriculum standards. We make this resource available to all School Radio customers along with dozens of additional resources via our School Radio customer portal (Login here)
