The Princess Royal will spend about an hour touring the new building. HRH will meet with staff, students, parents, academy councillors and some of the business and industry representatives that have developed strong links with Digitech Studio School and the Cabot Learning Federation, including Airbus, Amey, Bloodhound, Boomsatsuma, Intel and Mango.
During the tour, The Princess will also experience a Bloodhound workshop project with students and visit the Creative Media area where students will be engaged in broadcasting on the school radio. This will be the launch of the radio network, which is designed to broadcast across the Cabot Learning Federation network.
