BBC Young Reporters

As part of a project run by the BBC, BBC Young Reporter works in partnership with schools, colleges, youth organisations and charities to provide young people with the skills they need to create and understand the media. Schools and organisations taking part will benefit from access to exclusive events, training and resources, as well as mentoring and career talks from BBC staff and journalists. The project is backed by the likes of Huw Edwards, Tina Daheley, Steph McGovern, The One Show’s Alex Jones, BBC Newsbeat’s Roisin Hastie and Ben Mundy and Newsround’s Ricky Boleto.

A Midlands Today reporter and a cameraman visited our Academy and students were tasked with finding new and untold stories from our school and its community with the very best being shared on the programme, social media or online. Our very own Young Reporters Adam, Ahmed, Amarah, Ayicia, Harry, Kárey, Katelyn, Lama, Madalin, Richard, Saba, Saifullah, Soze and Tyreke all met with the reporter to discuss what story would be best to report on and have an impact towards students.

Below is the fantastic report which was filmed and edited by the BBC and presented by the students all by themselves!
