CCTV BBC News School Report

Pupils at Cowbridge Comprehensive School have been getting an insight into the world of journalism by taking part in BBC’s annual School Report project.

The project aims to get pupils engaged in the news by reporting on the issues that matter to them. Across the UK, over 900 schools take part in the annual news day, which took place this year on March 16th.

Seventeen Year 9 pupils from Cowbridge spent the day reporting, covering stories as diverse as teenage mental health problems and the rise in virtual reality gaming.
