Boston High School is happy to announce their continued partnership with The Young Journalist Academy, run by C1 Media and Paradigm Arts. The success story of our newsroom, with its widely published range of articles and columns, is perhaps best told by the choice of university courses in English and Journalism, apprenticeships in Journalism, and subsequent careers in the media industries, as pursued by our former students. Writing for our blog pages helped one ex-student to gain a column on a national car magazine within a couple of months of leaving school. Every year more Young Journalists are professionally trained here at Boston High School. The Young Journalist Academy is also offered as an optional weekly Enrichment activity for Sixth Form students.
Our links with the Young Journalist Academy have also helped our current students to gain enviable experience in the world of professional journalism. Aspiring Boston High School sports journalist Kyra Balderstone met her hero Jacqui Oatley in a documentary commissioned by WDR, a German public service television channel. And our Year 8 reporters made a short series of programmes comparing Boston with Bermuda.
