Rob Hammond from Lincs FM visits the academy


The Axholme Academy was very lucky to receive a visit from Lincs FM presenter Rob Hammond on Wednesday 3rd February.

Every week Rob Hammond visits different streets in Lincolnshire for his ‘Right Up Your Street’ feature. 

During his visit Rob was interviewed by students for the AX NEWS student newspaper which will be appearing in our summer edition.  Prior to his visit we mocked up the front page of the AX NEWS with a photo of Rob and the headline ‘Academy visited by Rob Hammond’ and lots of photos were taken to use on Lincs FM twitter account, our website etc.

Rob chose a topic to ask the students about which was ‘what did the students think life was like in the 80’s which received various answers such as there were no mobile phones, different  fashion and the TV only having 4 channels.

Mr Sellars, Principal, said ‘when we heard that Rob was due to visit Crowle for his feature we decided to get in touch and invite him to visit. We were delighted he could come along and meet our students. Their contributions were featured in his programme a couple of days later and they came across brilliantly. Rob also chatted with the ladies in our kitchen who also recorded contributions. His visit will feature in the next edition of the AX News’

Look out for our report and photos in more detail in the Summer edition of the AX NEWS.
