Ryburn Valley High School – on the lookout for volunteers!

FREE Promotional DVD for local community group


Ryburn Valley High School is looking for a ‘client’ group for their  year 13 (Upper 6th) BTEC Media students.

Their brief is to make a 10 minute film promoting a community group or local charity.

Ideally they would like to invite the groups’ representatives to school before half term (before 15th Feb) to discuss their requirements and they need to complete the project by May half term (Friday 24th).

This will be completely free to the ‘client’, the students will film at their location and produce the film to a professional standard. They will be closely supervised by staff throughout the project.

If your group is interested contact Karen Allen by email at
