Following our appeal against the recent Ofsted report (published 8th September 2016), Ofsted are withdrawing their report and issuing an amended version. This amended report will be published on the Ofsted website on 31st October 2016. We still find fault with their amended version and will provide an update on this issue in due course.

BBC School News Report


BBC News School Report has been a successful part of our Key Stage 3 curriculum for the last 6 years.  Pupils are able to explore radio, television and web-based media with the help of a specialist BBC mentor. It also offers a chance to have the final product aired on the BBC, as was our report into boxing as part of the school curriculum.


BBC News School Report helps interest young people in the world around them, producing news for a real audience. We have found that taking part in School Report supports all sorts of learning: helping students develop their team-working skills; managing time effectively; working independently; improving communication skills; thinking critically.
