Entitled Black and Gold, the online station will air every breaktime and lunchtime during school days and has a licence to play the latest music tracks.

Business teacher Justin Worland has been leading the project, which has attracted numerous students keen to either present or produce shows or promote the station.

As well as playing music, it will be used to talk about topical issues such as the peer listening scheme which is aimed at combating bullying and helping those youngsters who may be being bullied.

Business and enterprise subject coordinator Paul Skone said: “This is really great experience for pupils.

It will also be used to give valuable experience to the school’s media students.
