The Global Academy is here!

The Global Academy is a brand new state school for 14 – 19 year olds opening in September this year. 

The exciting new academy allows students to study GCSEs, A-Levels and the practical skills necessary to succeed in the media and creative industries. 

To celebrate the Global Academy, we asked Capital XTRA DJs Jez Welham and Abrantee to reminisce about their days in school. 

What do they wish they'd learnt? What advice would they give their younger selves? Check it out!
