Westfield is lucky enough to have its own radio station – AIR Radio. We see the station as another classroom of the school, where the children can develop their learning in an exciting, hands-on way. Every class has timetabled opportunities each week in the station, presenting live programmes and preparing high quality, spoken word programmes for broadcast at a later date. When pupils are ready they can enter for accredited courses in radio broadcasting and production.
As well as being a fantastic learning space for our children, AIR Radio also serves as the local community radio station for Portland and Weymouth. Broadcasting to a potential audience of 60,000 people, the station serves as a hub both for our pupils and the wider community beyond the school.
