BBC News School Report 2018

Cirencester Deer Park School made the news on Thursday 15 March by taking part in BBC News School Report Day. Along with hundreds of other schools participating across the country, our 11 dedicated reporters spent the day researching, writing and producing their very own stories. Exploring national, local and school news, our reporters were busy interviewing staff and pupils about the range issues they were tackling.

The day turned out to be a great success, all deadlines were met and stories were published live on our BBC News Page; a huge thank you to everyone who was involved in the process. The team are already coming up with ideas for next year and excited about meeting up again after Easter. Please read more under Latest News.

Miss Voss, English Teacher

We published news throughout the day and there are still stories to publish, so do keep an eye on this page and follow progress on @CDPStoday.



This morning, Harry (Year 10) interviewed architect David about the Cirencester Deer Park School new build.

BBC News School Report gives pupils in the UK the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience. Participating schools research and produce their own news reports on interesting things happening in their area. Teachers help develop pupils' journalistic skills to become School Reporters, so they can report on the stories that matter to them and make their voices heard. Last year around 30,000 pupils from over 1,000 schools took part in the annual News Day. 2018 will be the 5th year that Deer Park has taken part.



Our School Report team meet on Tuesdays after school and on Tuesday 30 January 2018 they had a practice session, aiming to create a number of items which will be published here on our website.

Yesterday, Monday 29 January 2018, David Beckham finally announced the news about his new, as yet unnamed, football club in Miami. There has been a lot of gossip about it and now, it is here. Visit BBC Sport website to see a video that talks more about Miami. So why is it good for Miami? Although it has beautiful scenery, the atmosphere created by a football stadium will make Miami go sky high!


World Cancer Day

by Kenneth (Year 10) and Ethan (Year 8)

cancer research ukWorld Cancer Day is on Sunday 4 February 2018.

Cancer Research is a charity working to find cures for these life threatening diseases. The charity is not funded by the government and gets its money totally from fundraising events, which is why it is so important to donate if you can.

To help this amazing cause, Mrs Hannis, Deer Park's Senior Year Leader (Year 7), is going to be pretty in pink on Monday 5 February! Mrs Hannis is feeling very excited about this event. She is busy trying to find things for her outstanding outfit, like temporary hair dye because she is not allowed to bleach her hair glorious pink. Mrs Hannis is also bustling around tearing her house apart to find pink clothes which will make up her outfit.

The most important thing Mrs Hannis is trying to achieve is to raise awareness of cancer and the requirement for funding. Her aim is to raise up to £500. So on Monday 5 February, put your hand in your pocket and dig out one pound for a great cause!

When we spoke to Mrs Hannis she said, “I’m really excited to have been given the opportunity to wear pink for the day and to hopefully achieve my goal of raising £500 for Cancer Research!!”
