The project culminates on School Report News Day - this year to be held on Thursday 10 March 2016 - where all schools taking part produce stories and publish them on their school websites. Last year, more than 1,000 schools took part, with students reporting on a wide range of issues.

  • South Bromsgrove High in the top 100 state schools in the UK

    Published 10/03/16, by Jane Banner

    Earlier this month, our school (South Bromsgrove High School) was named as one of the top 100 non-selective state schools in 2015/16.

    73% of pupils achieved 5 or more high level GCSE grades and 51% achieved these in the core subjects that the Government is promoting with the English Baccalaureate qualification. The English baccalaureate is for students who receive a C grade or higher in English, two sciences, a language, and a humanities subject. Due to this, we received a letter from the schools minister, Nick Gibb, who recognised us as being in one of the top 100 schools in the country. The school were proud of this result because as a school, the teachers try to offer a balanced curriculum, so interests can match to as many students as possible.

This a firearm that shoots splurge, a white, custard-like substance. These are only used by one gang, while their rivals are stuck using old fashioned weapons such as pies. The cast is usually played by school students, rather than senior actors, adding charm to the (custard) mix.

  • Is The New Station Really Worth It?

    Published 10/03/16, by Jane Banner

    A protest involving over twenty taxi cabs at Bromsgrove train station on Wednesday 10th February was caused by an unexpected closure to the taxi rank in the station.  The closure was due to the construction works at the new station which left many taxi drivers in Bromsgrove more than a little annoyed and, even after a week, a solution which the drivers consider to be satisfactory is still to be found. However, this does lead to many questioning whether Bromsgrove’s new train station is really worth the hassle and the money.
