BBC Young Reporter 2018-2019

Welcome to the Hitchin Boys’ School BBC Young Reporter home page. A team of students from Years 7, 8 and 9 will be regularly reporting on local and national news stories which you will be able to read via this home page.

What is BBC Young Reporter?

“BBC Young Reporter is about tapping into what really matters to young people, and giving them an opportunity and a platform to tell their stories.”  – Tony Hall, BBC Director-General

BBC Young Reporter gives secondary school students the opportunity to make their own news. A ‘live’ news day takes place every year in March and gives students the chance not only to put their news writing skills to the test but to experience being in front of the camera as a news reader and presenter, or behind the camera in a more technical role.
