BBC News School Report

BBC News School Report is a collaborative project run by BBC News and BBC Learning. It gives 11-16 year-old students in the UK the opportunity to make their own news reports for a real audience. Currently, at AHS, the project is open to pupils in years 8-11.

Pupils’ work will be posted on this page of the school website and linked to the School Report website so that all of the School Reporters’ articles, reports and features are accessible via

Students can report on anything that interests them, whether it is a local or national issue, a big or small story or something personal to them. Additionally, the BBC sometimes has reporting opportunities which they offer out to schools who have signed up to the project.

For pupils to take part they must have a permission form signed by their parents or carers. Students can get a form by attending School Report Club (Tuesday lunchtimes in E14) or by downloading it here. The form should be returned to Miss Holmes as soon as possible (the easiest way to do this is to put it in 13H’s pigeon-hole).
