Introducing AGS Radio
‘Welcome back to Adams’ Grammar School Radio with your presenters today – Sam, Jonty and Harry’ is becoming a familiar sound within the AGS community.
The team first floated the idea for a radio station back in the autumn term, wanting to produce a show that was for the students and by the students – from Year 7s right up to the Sixth Form, as well as parents, Old Novaportans, teachers and other associates of the school.
Their motivation and encouragement was further fuelled when they arranged a trip to Heart FM Radio North West to learn from two of the best presenters in the industry, Joel and Lorna.
Their mission: “AGS Radio is to be the student voice of Adams’ Grammar School, broadcasting a wide range of easy-to-access, informal and informative news and entertainment to our students, the AGS community… and beyond!”
The boys presented AGS Radio to the school during a full school assembly and shortly after aired their first show. They are now on track to deliver fortnightly broadcasts that will include a number of regular features:
- news and views from school life
- the build-up to and analysis of House events
- interviews with Old Novaportans and special guests
- the leader board ‘quick-fire’ quiz
- student achievements and shout outs
- informal discussions and top tips from Adams’ students on relevant topics.
- live student performances whenever possible to showcase all the talent from within the school.
