On Tuesday some of our Year 9 students had the opportunity to visit the digital production facility, PROTO, based in Gateshead’s Baltic Quarter. As part of this year’s Boys’ Network programme, in partnership with M10, the group of boys were taken on a private tour of PROTO’s offices and facilities.

The Creative Arts and Tech centre is certainly thriving in this part of the North East, and the boys were encouraged to explore the recording studios, photographic studios and 3D capture technology, along with virtual and augmented reality experiences.

It was a fantastic afternoon out with students gaining valuable insight into Tech and Creative Arts careers, learning about new equipment and even entering into a North East podcast competition!

PROTO are also offering a free three day summer school in August, whilst places are limited there is still some availability. Here is some more information:
