A unique hands-on learning experience to build children’s confidence, communication and team-working skills whilst working with media technology.

“It’s fun and you get to learn
how to edit things”

We know how excited students from local schools are when they visit our professional radio studios at the Media Centre in Cotmanhay.

It gave us the idea to create a portable radio studio that we can take on the road with us and set-up in a classroom.

“It helps kids learn technology and what they use behind the scenes”

Students will get hands-on with professional equipment that they enjoy using; we will show them how to use it and work with the children to create sound media that can later be shared within the school and further with parents and carers. 

We will support the creation of audio news bulletins and even a mini radio programme with the class group taking-on different roles.

We know Studio in a Box will be a fun day for the students, but most importantly it is offered to reinforce the curriculum. 

Our team will meet with the lead teacher ahead of the scheduled date to understand a topic or project the class has been working-on and ensure the planned activities support the student’s learning objectives. 

“It is really fun and you get to learn a lot of new things”

Suitable for a group of up to 16 students, we will tailor our offer to create a bespoke package that works both for a smaller class spending an entire day with Studio in a Box or for a larger class split into two groups to attend either a morning or afternoon session.

Erewash Sound is all about being a part of the Erewash community and Studio in a Box helps us to demonstrate this as we aim to work with all primary schools on our doorstep in the borough.

However we can also take our offer into schools further afield in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.


Studio in a Box programmes for a day with 3 DBS checked experienced trainers start from £558.

Funding to subsidise the costs for your school may be available locally, please contact us for more details.
