    I made a model car which had a relay to reverse the motor current. I used 555 timers to generate flashing lights and sirens. I also used an op amp and LDR's to make the head lights come on automaticaly in the dark.

    A radio alarm clock is surely a bit complicated for GCSE. I would stick to something simple involving timers and sensors, like a programmable timer that is also light sensitive.
    Yes most the stuff involved in making a radio alarm clock is not even in the GCSE sylabus so it wouild be pointless.

    Are they creating their own radio tramsion circuits? As pig says its way out of the scope of GCSE.
