The group initially consisted of 30 students from Years 7-11 who volunteered for the programme. A number of positions were advertised and the students were required to complete a letter of application, stating which position they were applying for and details of their transferable skills. Immediately, this gave the project a formality and ensured the students understood that it takes a large number of people to make a high quality news programme.

Today, 15 girls from Year 5 at Northview Primary school in Neasden visited the Crest Girls’ Academy where they took part in some exciting Maths challenges, puzzles and games. The students showed their impressive Maths skills as they successfully solved problems together in teams. They also heard from two of their former students, Tia and Gabrielle who are now in Year 10 here, all about the exciting opportunities that await them at secondary school.
As the cohort that will be the first to start in the new buildings they were very excited to see the computer generated images of these state of the art facilities.
As they left, they all agreed they had had a great time and would love to come here in September 2014!
