THE headteacher, Wayne Birks, and pupils at Abbey College, Ramsey, were guests and volunteers during Huntingdonshire Community Radio's two week long series of broadcasts.
Mr Birks told Bill Hensley, one of the radio station's presenters, what it was like to set up a new school as well as share his vision for the future of secondary education in Ramsey. Three sixth form students from the college, Dave Glover, Anand Maniar and Jasmine Scanlon-Carling, helped with production and tried their hand at broadcasting.
David Brockman, executive producer for HCRFM, said: "It's not as easy as it looks going on air but we were really pleased with the students' effort and enthusiasm. They have been a credit to themselves, their families and Abbey College."
