Bedtime stories

The Tortoise and the Hare

A radio station for children in care.

AfC Virtual School has a school radio station.  This is your station and we really want you to get involved.    We are lucky  to work with Neil Long who presents the Breakfast Show on Radio Jackie.

New shows are broadcast every Wednesday 6-7pm and repeated daily.   We are applying for funding so that we can employ an ex-care leaver with Broadcast Media qualifications as an Apprentice.   If this sounds like you and you want to develop what we believe to be the first Children In Care Radio Station in the country then get in touch!

If you can sing, play an instrument, DJ, read a poem or tell a joke please also get in touch as we would love to feature you on a show. 

Why do we have a Radio Station for Children in Care?

  • To give our students a chance to learn a new skill
  • To build confidence and celebrate success
  • To create a sense of belonging – it doesn’t matter where you live, you can listen to your Radio Station, and know you are a very important part of our school.  Also, we can visit your physical school and record you presenting or performing.  So get in touch!
  • It is fun to take part and fun to listen to!

So what happens on the show?

In our current Wednesday 6pm show we have a blend of great music, lively news stories, celebrity gossip (Sting RAY)  and at the end of the show our bedtime story.   We do our best to have something for all ages so do check us out and let us know what you think.  If you think you can do better we want to give you the chance!  So contact us via email on the Contact page.
