WFR began life on Wednesday February 24th 2010 and is broadcast on the school intranet, the reception area and dining room. There are 5 programme teams each responsible for one 30 minute programme broadcast each day, Monday to Friday from 13.00 -13.30. Each programme includes news, weather, what's on in the school and the local area, interviews with visitors and staff, plus a selection of music. The speech/music ratio is approximately 50/50. The station was officially opened by Rod Whiting from BBC Radio Lincolnshire.
On Red Nose Day we sent our reporter Oliver to check out what fund raising was going on around the school and he came back into the studio to chat about his findings. Mr Muir described his career to date and the team talked about their favourite or ideal television channel.
