Jill Dando News Centre

We are very excited to introduce our new Jill Dando News Centre. A group of Year 6 pupils are our news team and they have been working really hard to write, edit and publish good news stories from our school. Take a look at their newspapers so far. 

Virtual Interviews!

In this unusual time we find ourselves in, our young reporters are still finding opportunities to use their skills with some virtual interviews - please take the time to watch them below.

Testimonial

From Andrew Buncombe - Chief US Correspondent for The Independent.

The interview was a genuine pleasure. It was uplifting and exciting to see such  enthusiasm among the students. I would very much like to take up the invitation to pay a visit next time I am in the area.

Thanks again,

Andrew

 

JDNC Interview with Ed Chamberlin & Tim Williams

Testimonial

Testimonial from Tim Williams -TV Producer & Programme Editor for ITV Racing – the BAFTA winning home of free-to-air horse racing in the UK. 


The Jill Dando News Centre is an amazing opportunity for them all to get that experience at such a young age, something I would have loved at school myself. The questions were brilliant - well researched, concise and well delivered - more so than some of my answers!
 

I hope those with ambitions of making a career in journalism stick at it. They'd be most welcome to contact me with any further questions if they do. They're already well ahead of the majority of people for their age and I can definitely see some future broadcasters amongst the group.
