BBC School Report

We are excited to announce that this year we are taking part in the BBC School Report 2017/2018. This is a journalism project for pupils aged 11-18 across the UK.

The pupils create the news and upload it here to our website. Platanos College news will then be accessible to a worldwide BBC audience. The BBC will showcase the work of School Reporters across BBC programmes in the UK on News Day which is Thursday 15th March 2018

Check back for regular updates and to read our pupils' news stories!
