A new beginning at Hurstmere School
A working partnership inside the curriculum has a very positive impact
We realised we shared a synergy with Hurstmere School for giving young people innovative opportunities to express themselves creatively in October 2021. By putting the production process into the hands of young people, it enables them to increase their understanding of digital media and work with their peers to construct new digital outcomes, where they bring their ideas and narratives to life using broadcast technologies. Hurstmere gave us a contract and the space for an immersive multi-camera green screen studio and production control room, a base, and we gave them an independent TV Production Company on site. You can read more about our inclusive learning by doing approach here.
