English Department Podcast
Until Summer 2018, the Bede's English department would record a new installment of its podcast once a term.
Consisting of pupil work and themed discussions, each episode covered a different topic and featured voices of girls and boys from a range of year groups.
Each episode features an interview with a different pupil, teacher or member of the Bede's community and is all about creativity, reading and writing in the broadest sense.
As part of the podcast, guests contribute books to the 'Small Island Library' (below), and we welcome your contributions too, via firstname.lastname@example.org

“ It is through reading and writing that we discover who we are, or who we want to be. In each piece of writing, I want my pupils to have the chance to reinvent themselves. ”
