The Global Academy is here. A brand new state school for 14 – 19 year olds opening in September this year.
The Global Academy will provide academic and vocational training for 800 students who want to work in the broadcast and digital media industry. The curriculum will get a practical makeover ensuring the 14-18 year olds are not only prepared for their GCSEs and A-Levels but also for a career in the fast-growing broadcast and digital media industries.
At the same time, students at the Global Academy will learn the technical skills needed to work in the broadcast and digital media industry preparing them for jobs in radio and TV production, broadcast engineering, app and web development, script writing, event management, radio production, broadcast journalism and many more.
