BBC School Report is the project managed by the BBC School Report Team which gives 11–16 year old students opportunities to make their own news reports for real life audiences.
 
In addition to the main BBC School Report Day in March each year, there are BBC School Report Practice Days throughout the year to help students gain hands-on experience before their BIG reporting day in March.
 
The School Report Newsday is in March and our pupils are constantly looking for new stories to cover, so if you know of anything that you think we should be reporting on please get in touch.
 
The academic year 2011-2012 sees the 4th time that Whitley Academy (aka Whitley Abbey Business and Enterprise College) student reporters got involved in the BBC School Report project.
 
Our diverse profile includes reports on the Ricoh Arena Stadium in Coventry in March 2011, Lord Sebastian Coe’s visit to Perryfields primary school in Birmingham in October 2011, and most recently, an interview with Julia O’Connell – the lead artist creating the extraordinary size-54 coat for Imagineer Productions' Godiva Awakes as a part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

The most recent Student Reporters’ work can be found on the right hand side of this page. The archive of previous BBC School Report work can be seen by following the "Whitley Academy's Reporter's Journey" link below.

We have been asking School Reporters taking part in the project for their views on the Scottish referendum results. They gave us their reaction and told us how they think it will affect them in the future and for those who voted for the first time - how they found the experience. - The BBC News School Reporters
