BBC School Report
What is School Report ?  
BBC News School Report gives 11-16 year-old students in the UK the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience.
 
Using lesson plans and materials from this website, and with support from BBC staff and partners, teachers help students develop their journalistic skills to become School Reporters.
 
In March, schools take part in an annual News Day, simultaneously creating video, audio and text-based news reports, and publishing them on a school website, to which the BBC aims to link.
 
School Reporters in March 2012 produced a stunning array of content with more than 1,000 schools across the UK making the news on the biggest ever School Report News Day.

Year 11 Football Cup Final
 
The year 11 cup final was held today against Ivybridge. As well as we played, we lost 5-1. Our tactics were defend hard and attack on brake. The team trained rely very hard every Friday lunch! They still did VERY well to get to the finals. GO TOR BRIDGE HIGH!
 
Unemployment on the rise
