Hertswood Academy BBC Schools News Report 2016-17
Foundations for the Future
Each year the academy participates in the BBC News School Report project, with eager student reporters from Years 7 to 9 taking the role of a news team. Through the school year they work together to produce short reports on topics of their choosing.
For the March 2017 BBC News School Report day, a team of Year 7 and 8 students chose to report on the new world-class academy buildings underway, and due to open in September 2019. They wrote, filmed, featured in, and edited the report below, all in one afternoon.
For previous school reports from the academy, see the Hertswood Academy YouTube page.
