BBC School Report


Watch our 2016 BBC School Report


Students from this school will be making the news for real on 10 March 2016 as they take part in BBC News School Report. We aim to publish the news by 1600 GMT on the News Day, so please save this page as a favourite and return to it later.  In the meantime, take a look at what our students produced last year.  


Our student team of writers, correspondents and producers have worked hard to report on a range of school topics and issues, ranging from BYOD (bring your own device) and cyber-bullying to the Duke of Edinburgh Award and a Maths-Dance fusion performance.


The team, led by Mrs Bradford, Miss Joyce and Mr Mannion, have spent weeks preparing and practising for today’s journalism bonanza. News reports were storyboarded, written, filmed and edited all in the span of a single school day. Well done everyone!

A special thank you to Mr Kates and the Network Support Team for their help on the day.

BBC News School Report gives 11-16 year-old students in the UK the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience.

It is a collabon March, schools take part in an annual News Day, simultaneously creating video, audio and text-based news reports, and publishing them on a school website, to which the BBC aims to link.
School Reporters produced a stunning array of content on 27 March 2014, with more than 1,000 schools across the UK making the news on the biggest ever School Report News Day.
The ninth News Day will be held on 19 March 2015.
BBC News presenter and former teacher Huw Edwards is working on School Report.
He said: "Over the years I've run many journalism workshops in schools. So I've seen how much fun it can be and how much can be learnt when there are real deadlines, real audiences and real standards to meet.
"I'm involved because I want to give young people the chance to make the news themselves, and I want to share the principles of good journalism. "So have a go, let me know what you think, and good luck!"
 Huw Edwards is a BBC News presenter

Practice News Days

As well as the main News Day in March, there are also opportunities to join in a Practice News Day - a chance to rehearse what you will do on the big day itself.
You can check out what went on in schools all around the UK in one of our live Practice News Day pages from the 2013-14 academic yearfor an idea of the sort of stories that schools cover.
You can hold your own Practice News Day on a date of your choosing, but one advantage of taking part in one on a central date is that your school will be featured on the School Report website.
The 2014/15 Practice News Days at TPS will take place on: Tuesday 10 February.

Public service

The BBC runs School Report so that young people from across the UK have the chance to make their own news to real deadlines and broadcast it to real audiences.
This is because the BBC's first public purpose under its Charter is to "sustain citizenship and civil society", in part by providing an impartial news service for all.
School Report helps fulfil this in three ways:
By engaging young people with news
By bringing their voices and stories to a wider audience
By sharing some of the public service values behind content creation, such as fairness, accuracy, and impartiality since so many young people are content creators and distributors.
