Pupils go live on Ra­dio One

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - GCSE RESULTS -

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.”
