BBC Radio York’s School of the Week

BBC Radio York’s School of the Week

We were delighted to have been asked by Radio York to be “School of the Week” – and be only the 2nd school to have taken part.  Every morning this week, therefore, members of the Malton School community have been engaged in conversation with Georgey Spanswick on her breakfast show.

It’s been a great week as both staff and students have given Radio York’s listeners an insight into life here.  Mr Williams kicked the week off and much to his embarrassment was asked again about his Award for Headteacher of the Year.  Tuesday was the turn of Mrs Blacker as she shared some of her first day nerves on starting here as a Newly Qualified Teacher in September.  On Wednesday Mrs Cooper illuminated proceedings with some of the biology experiments students have been involved in – including making bacteria glow in the dark and Roman methods for curing diseases.  The Creative Arts Faculty stole the show on Thursday when Mr Lee and some of his Year 13 students talked not only about why they love drama, but also about the ways it has increased their confidence.  And last, but by no means least, Mr Fenwick brought the week’s proceedings to a close, ending on a real high.  He was joined by 2 of our D of E students, including a former student, who not only achieved her Gold Award whilst at school but went on to be an expedition assessor herself and hopes to come back to school to help with our D of E expeditions.

The school’s motto, “Unitate Fortiores” (stronger for being one), came up regularly in the conversations, as did that sense of community we have worked so hard to build.  We would like to thank Radio York for allowing us the opportunity to share with others why we think Malton is such a great school – and look forward to hearing from other schools in North Yorkshire as they too have the opportunity to share their sterling work.

If you missed any of the days, you can listen to them again on catch-up!
