We lead the market with our innovative approach to School Radio

Our School Radio Stations are still the cheapest in the World and start from £2,995

Educators are using Live School Radio to motivate and inspire learners and improve writing and speaking skills.  Our technology is built around the needs of young people not the Broadcasting Industry.  Our customers use their school radio stations to bring callers onto their shows from Skype saving on dedicated telephone hardware and utilising the power of IP telephony without impacting on school switchboards or hearing themselves on the Programme-Mix.  They can also pause music tracks, drag and drop MP3 files onto the Jingle Playout Software that you can trial free of charge.  They can bring music on their USB Memory stick and play it into the show without importing, transcoding and faffing around with anything.   This is what young people expect today!  Our customers can upgrade for a full professional radio station playout environment when they're ready.  We use commercially available hardware that is tried and tested in the marketplace and bring it together with our refreshing approach to broadcasting.  For a near instant start-up experience, we've added a Solid-State Boot Disk - Windows 10 was designed for this particular technology.  We have a small educationally focussed range of products.  An all-in turnkey system that comes with a computer and touch-screen monitor built into either desktop studio furniture or a portable solution.  We also offer a cheaper solution built around using one of your iPads/Tablet Computers and a Laptop.  We can also provide you with a complete commercial studio using Radio Star software from Jazler, 3 Touch-Screen monitors, capacity for multiple guests and some gorgeous head-turning studio furniture.

Things that make us different!
We are the only School Radio manufacturer that has their own Radio Station, we don't just talk about broadcasting, we do it!  Over 40 million people Worldwide have listened to our shows.  Get one of our FREE APPs from the Google Store or listen on your iPhone with our Apple Store App and find out just how good our equipment really sounds.  We train you and your young people on your site to save you the cost of cover and attending a session elsewhere!

Why School Radio?

WHAT DO YOUNG PEOPLE GET FROM IT?   

Working in groups to tight deadlines, the realisation that there's no undo button with live radio and the coping and resilience strategies that come from this level of engagement.  You can expect an almost immediate improvement in speaking & listening as well as writing and punctuation.  Working with digital devices can be useful too, we've discovered that writing scripts on iPads leads to more text and a higher level of language (Arts Council of Wales Project).

Not all School Radio solutions are created equal.  Our expertise has come from the classroom not the broadcasting industry.  We have a strong view that the whole process has to demonstrate a measurable learning outcome that colleagues can be familiar with.  This is not about teaching young people to be radio stars!  The equipment has to be easy to operate, automation needs to be kept to a minimum.  Young people tell us their favourite bit is always going live to a real audience and knowing that folks are listening to them.
