Pupils go live on Radio One
Opening up your GCSE results is a nerve-racking experience, but doing it live on Radio One’s breakfast show while millions of people are listening is taking it to another level.
That was the case for Ormiston Bushfield Academy pupils Simon Burgess, Daniela Araujo and Daniel Milson who were with DJ Greg James as they discovered their results before relaying them to the nation on the Nick Grimshaw show.
But, it appears Greg’s visit even caught principal Dennis Kirwan by surprise. School exams officer Juliet Dillion said: “I tried to convince the principal I was not winding him up and it would genuinely happen. He took a bit of convincing!” Juliet emailed Radio One to get Greg to come along as part of his ‘Rent-A-Greg’ segment which sees him try out different activities. She added: “Greg turned up at half eight. He was an extra hand helping to put result slips in envelopes, helping to put results in alphabetical order.
“He helped give out the results then spent a bit of time chatting to pupils afterwards and taking a concern about where they are off to next. The students did well and got a thumbs up from Radio One. “They were really good.”
