Stockport Academy Gaming Club play their way onto CBBC

Stockport Academy Gaming Club play their way onto CBBC

Published on 15 March 2017

Members of our Gaming Club are to be featured on national television to review a new games console.

Five students were invited to Media City to take part in filming for CBBC’s Newsround, after researchers heard about our after-school Gaming Club.

They spent several hours trying out the new device before comparing it with rival games console. A film crew then asked them questions about their thoughts on the experience.

Science Teacher Mr MacInnes, who runs Gaming Club, said: “This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for our students and they took it with both hands.

“They were a credit to themselves and the academy and I can’t wait to see them on my television screen!”

Year 8 student Harry Cox was one of those to attend. He said: “The visit to Media City was so cool and everything I dreamed it would be. We really enjoyed it and it was great to try out a brand new console.”

The feature aired on Monday 20th March - watch it below
