Welcome to Sutton Studio #parenthub

Welcome to Sutton Studio!

Sutton Studio is a state of the art educational recording studio onsite at Sutton School & Specialist College. Students are regularly invited to record songs, radio casts and learn how to run and operate a recording studio as part of their enrichment studies. Every year behind the scenes the students do regular recordings for shows, performances and other school events. We also like to showcase our local home grown talent by recording them during their free time at school. 

Have a listen to student Ewan Rigg's own composition recorded in our amazing studio.

RNLI Fundraising at Sutton #parenthub

Over the last twelve months  Sutton School have been collecting old and foreign coins to donate to the RNLI Station in Barmouth. The COINS  we have collected have gone towards the new inshore lifeboat. The new D class lifeboat was named Craig Steadman in memory of a Holyhead RNLI crew member who sadly died in a motorbike accident in 2015.

The ceremony was very moving in the presence of around 300 guests, so it was a good turnout on such a miserable day. 

The Sutton school are very proud of being able to contribute to this with a donation of £110.07 and would like to thank you all for your contributions.

The photographs were taken on the day of the naming ceremony by Mr Nicolas Leach. 

LIVE ON AIR at Black Country Radio #parenthub

Students from Sutton School & Specialist College had an amazing time visiting the Black Country Radio station. They got a tour around the studios and even got to be part of the morning radio show and promote the school production. All of the students learnt a lot about running a radio station and enjoyed their time broadcasting live on air.
