Pupils write for online newspaper

A small group of Year 10 and Year 11 pupils have joined a team of student reporters and are going to spend this year experiencing what it is like to be a journalist by taking part in the Young Reporter scheme. 

This scheme offers pupils the chance to work for a real live news platform and try their hands working as reporters, in what has become a highly competitive industry.  They have the opportunity to write the news from a young person’s point of view and to build up a portfolio of published work.  Students sign up for eight months and have to write at least one article a month which is then published online.  All those who compete in the scheme will receive a written recommendation, the top thirty-three students will attend a Media Award Ceremony with one student from each age group becoming the face of 2018/19.
