Stand by your pod…


The music department launched their first podcast on the school’s new website the week before half-term.

A podcast is a multi-media file distributed over the internet for playback on mobile devices and personal computers.

Head of music Leigh Saunter, who was responsible for bringing podcasting to Beaulieu, said: ‘It’s really exciting that the school has started podcasting, and it has been so popular that I received an e-mail from one father asking when his daughter would feature on it,’ he said.

Mr Saunter said that the decision to start podcasting came about when the music department acquired a new Mac Pro computer which features the software Garage Band, which can be used to podcast.

‘Sixth-formers toyed with the idea of launching a weekly independent radio station, and then we decided it would be great for the department to start podcasting,’ he said.
