Synergy Multi-Academy Trust comprises ten Norfolk schools serving children between the ages of 2 and 18. Our schools work collaboratively together to raise standards and provide education of the highest possible standard, offering the best of opportunities for pupils. The Trust was initially established in 2015. We believe that all of our schools have strengths and areas to develop, and that all can improve through sharing expertise and wisdom. The Trust understands that there will be excellent practice in each school, and that every school will be able to contribute to the development of the Trust as a whole.
Senior BBC News Director visits Reepham College.
On Wednesday 23rd January we were delighted to welcome Richard Murrell, one of the Senior BBC News Directors to Reepham, this was made possible through our participation with the Speakers for Schools programme.
Richard has over thirty years of experience in broadcasting and has been a Director for some of the BBC’s most prestigious programmes over the past decade.
Our Year 12 students, together with Year 13 students studying Business Studies and English were given an entertaining and informative illustrated talk covering the development of the BBC and Richards’s personal career path. This included ‘seeing’ Richard in action through the use of a gopro camera following the broadcast of a live programme, seeing how the facebook live team operate, how to cope when things don’t go according to plan and what to consider when thinking about a career in broadcasting. One lucky student was also given the opportunity to give ‘autocue’ a try! Students were then given the opportunity to put their individual questions to Richard.
