Eight Cordeaux students presented a live evening show on BBC Radio Lincolnshire to mark School Report day, following a workshop with radio presenter Jono Brine.

On Thursday March 10, Lewis Howard took on the role of presenter and dazzled the regular hosts and producers - even leading a BBC Regional Director to mistake Lewis for one of their own presenters due to his confident persona.

Jess Baxter and 
Hollie Frampton presented a live weather bulletin, and 
interviewed local businesswoman Pip Molloy from Damselfly about the changing nature of Louth’s high street.

Ben Jaques-Ross, Jazmyn Urry and Tom Fussey interviewed Look North’s Peter Levy about his career.

Mr Levy later complimented the students’ clarity and excellent questioning skills, and gave them some great advice on launching a media career.

Jamie Warrilow and Robert Marshall were the brains behind the mixing and production of the show, working alongside 
the professionals to ensure that everything ran smoothly.

A school spokeswoman said: “All eight were a credit to the Academy in terms of their behaviour and their skills live on air. The team at the BBC were staggered at 
how smoothly the show went.

“A huge well done to them for their hard work and 
effort throughout the project.”
