Radio project at Toynbee School


In the Spring and Summer of 2012, we worked with a group of visually impaired students at a Hampshire School, supporting them to set up and present their own radio station.

Radio project at Toynbee School

The Year 9 pupils from the school's Visual Impairment unit attended an after school club and learned how to present and produce their own radio programmes, which then played over the school speakers during lunch breaks.

A highlight of the project was a visit to Voice FM, Southampton's community radio station.

This project was funded by Hampshire County Council's Short Breaks funding scheme.
