Thornhill Park School

Thornhill Park School is an independent specialist school based in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear for pupils aged 4-19

Our mission is to work together inspiring, supporting, celebrating and equipping autistic and neurodiverse children, young people and adults.

Issac, one of our pupils at Thornhill Park School, developed the idea of creating our very own radio station within school. In order to research the idea further, a visit was arranged to the BBC studios in Newcastle.

Issac, along with our teaching assistant Susan, visited the studios for a tour. Issac had the opportunity to visit different areas within the studio including the radio station and news area. He was able to ask a range of questions in relation to his research and explore some of the equipment that is used.
