BBC News School Report has been a successful part of our Key Stage 3 curriculum for the last 2 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 2008 report into boxing as part of the school curriculum (see article below).
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.
