BBC Young Reporter Festival at Princess Helena College

This March students from PHC will be taking part in the first ever BBC Young Reporter Festival, which is taking place across the UK.

The BBC Young Reports Festival will run from Monday 9 March to Friday 13 March. Winning stories will be shared on BBC television, radio and online throughout the week. There will also be live events at BBC sites across the UK which will include Q&As, performances, screenings, practical workshops and tours. 

The festival aims to educate and inform young people about the news and the world around them by giving them the opportunity to produce their own reports. It allows young people to inform a real audience about the subjects and stories that matter to them on BBC platforms and programmes. 

What will PHC students be doing? 

  • Creating reports on subjects that matter to them as they happen.
  • Uploading work and ideas directly to BBC programme makers.
  • Accessing resources that help teach journalistic and technical skills directly from BBC staff and presenters.
