The team, led by Lead Teacher of Geography Miss Parr, is delighted to have been shortlisted as semi-finalists in the United Utilities Radio Commercial Competition. But they now need your help to reach the finals.
The team’s public safety radio advert, which warns about the dangers of swimming in reservoirs, is competing alongside nine other schools on United Utilities’ YouTube channel.
