FXAspire Student Media Team Updates

Welcome to the official media page for the FXAspire week - content brought to by the Felixstowe Academy Student Media Team.  

The Student Media Team have been busily taking photos and interviewing students throughout the week, and keeping in contact with staff who are on trips to ensure their images are recorded.  For many the FXAspire experience was their first taste in working in a fast paced environment, learning to capture images quickly and looking out for good stories.  Others developed editing skills and digital production.  We plan to use FXAspire as the spring board for a weekly club in September.

The Student Media Team included: Adrian, Adrienne, Alex G, Alex P, Archie, Ben, Bradley, Byron, Connor, Craig, Dylan, Joe, Kieran, Matthew, Nathan, Ollie, Will, Mrs English, Miss Stabb, Mr M Salter and Mr Ozanne.

If you have any images you would like to see included, please email content to newsletter@felixstoweacademy.org and we will update this page during the Summer and at the start of the new academic year.

To view the team's live updates throughout the week, please follow Felixstowe Academy on Twitter: @FXA_Academy or view our Tweets on the side panel on the Academy website Home Page
