Radiowaves is a network of free school websites where pupils can broadcast their own videos, podcasts and blogs.

Haania Amir, 15, said: "I really enjoy video production and find learning all of the filming and editing techniques really interesting.

"For the competition, we all had to produce a short film discussing the pros and cons of using robots in wars, which was a challenging subject."

The academy is now offering an after school film-making course to students and their families, starting on Monday, October 31, from 4.30pm to 6pm. To enrol, call Helen Parker on 01724 842447.
