BBC School Report is a journalism project for students aged 11 to 18 across the UK. Students make the news and upload it to our website which is linked to the BBC’s interactive website map, meaning that our news is accessible to a worldwide BBC audience. Once per year the BBC showcase the work of School Reporters across BBC programmes in the UK on News Day which is Thursday, 15 March 2018.


At Eastlea’s BBC School Report, we focus on making high quality, student led televisual news. We have interviewed politicians such as the Prime Minister, Education Secretary and local MPs; Business leaders such as Lord Hall – Director of the BBC, Satya Nadella – CEO of Microsoft and Michael Acton Smith of Moshi Monsters; and from locations such as MCM Comicon  to The Forbidden City and Great Wall of China. Students develop journalistic skills, technical aptitude in directing, camera, sound and editing, and come away more confident individuals. The club is run by Mr Moss, a professional photographer, Director of Photography and seasoned sound engineer who has worked on international documentaries, Music videos and feature films.
