podcast award senior school on the air

We are delighted to announce that Culford's podcast, On the Air, has received the prestigious Best Use of Spotify School Stories Award. Featuring voices from all three schools, the podcast proudly clinched the award amidst tough competition from hundreds of schools worldwide. 

The pupil-led podcast offers a unique peek into the Culford community and has garnered over 2,000 downloads worldwide since its launch in 2021. The On the Air team comprises Ellena, Evie, Elizabeth, Harriet, Holly R and Holly C, with each member growing in confidence and skill each term. While narrowly missing out on the Best Told Student Story Award, the School Stories team shared that the episode featuring Sophie's journey with cystic fibrosis was highly contested. 

Congratulations to our talented podcasters for creating meaningful content that resonates far beyond the gates of Culford.
