Learning & Achieving Together

Year 8 Visit to the BBC

On Thursday, 15 March as part of our ongoing participation in the BBC School Report, a group of Year 8 students were invited to BBC Broadcasting House to find out all about the world of media. 

Students were lucky enough to speak to BBC Journalists including Huw Edwards, see The One Show studio being set up and attend a workshop on fake news run in part by Jane Hill and Ros Atkins. They also got a quick hello from Mollie King (The Saturdays and Strictly) and Matt Edmondson (Radio 1).

Students gained a feel for what it was like to work in the media industry and even got to practise their camera skills.  Maybe one day we will see them working at the BBC!
