BBC News School Report


On Thursday, 16th March, pupils from Slough and Eton took part in the BBC News School Report project.  Six Year 9 pupils reviewed topics and decided to cover a range of stories important to pupils at Slough and Eton.  Following a lively editorial meeting, the pupils assigned stories, researched ideas, interviewed staff and pupils and finalised their news articles and video presentations for uploading on the BBC News School Report website. The articles and their exclusive interview with Mr. McAteer, the Headteacher, are live here!

BBC News Report 2014

The BBC News Project gives some of our budding journalists at Slough and Eton the opportunity to develop their research and writing skills. During after-school sessions, the pupils pitch, investigate, and write news articles in preparation for the annual BBC News Day in March. On this day, thousands of students across the country report on events and topics that affect them. In 2014, our pupils were invited to BBC Broadcasting House to meet the Director General Lord Tony Hall and to interview project leaders working in schools across the UK.
