Our past work has included interviewing the Olympic Gold Medalists the Brownlee brothers, visiting the Human Research Labs and interviewing Paralympic Gold Medalist David Weir, being interviewed by Ian Palmer from the BBC and visiting The Guardian newspaper to create our very own newspaper front pages.

Articles from March 2017 News Day:

On 10th March 2016, we took part in the BBC School Report real news day.  We had to meet a tight deadline and get all of our stories uploaded by 2pm that day.

The School Report team has covered a wide range of topics from their interview with gold Paralympic medallist David Weir and their tour of the Human Research Labs, to insights on the controversial issue of whether tackling in school rugby should be banned.  We've also covered Sport Relief, Tim Peake's space mission, whether technology is overpriced and much more.
