Tendring Technology School had its ‘Best Ever Day’ at the start of BBC Children In Need week by hosting Radio One presenters and special guests.

The Frinton based school produced a 30 second music video to show why they should be chosen as the ‘live’ venue for a day of fun activities and events. It was selected as the most creative, innovative and original entry.

Alice Levine began the day with a live broadcast of the Breakfast Show, supported by Greg James and Chris Stark. Special guests during the day were former Scottish rugby international , Thom Evans, who had competed in the current BBC TV’s Strictly Come Dancing and took a dance class with his tv partner Iveta Lukosiute.

Greg James helped to serve the school lunches; Manchester band Rixton performed in a packed school hall; while rapper, Professor Green, dropped in on a number of unsuspecting classes.

Caroline Haynes, Principal of Tendring Technology College, said: “It has been incredibly exciting. We have incredibly talented students and teachers here and we have loved showing that off to millions of listeners.”
