BBC School News Report 2017

KS3 Ski Trip

This group of girls consisted of Emma Craig (Year 8), Joanna McCombe (Year 8), Hollie Thompson (Year 8) and Amy Bailey (Year 9). The girls decided on making a report about the school’s recent Ski Trip. This report is the very first report made by these group of girls. Well done and we hope that you enjoy it as much as they had making it!

Open Night

Richard Smyth worked on this report himself. Richard’s report involved interviewing pupils from prospective primary schools. He conducted the interviews and recording all by himself! Richard did a fantastic job, well done!



Students from this school will be making the news for real on 16 March 2017 as they take part in BBC News School Report. We aim to publish the news by 1600 GMT on 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.

Group 1

Group 1 have based their report around the school’s production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat”. The pupils interviewed staff and pupils involved as well as filmed during rehearsals and on the night of one of the performances.

Group 2 decided to produce an entire news programme which includes news, weather and sport. Their programme includes interviews with staff and pupils. These pupils were involved in the project last year and wanted to try something different and challenge themselves.

Both groups worked exceptionally hard! Well done to all!
