Young Reporter 2019


Hampton’s budding journalists scooped 11 prizes at the recent Newsquest Young Reporter Awards with success in all categories including Breaking News, Event, Feature, Interview and Photography.

Over 600 pupils from schools across London and the South East participated in the Young Reporter initiative this year including a remarkable 51 Hampton boys. Those involved in the programme had to research and write eight articles in a range of categories, meeting deadlines between October and April. Their pieces were published on the Newsquest This is Local London website

Eight Hampton boys were selected as finalists, receiving warm praise from Young Reporter coordinator Diana Jarvis:

Congratulations to all Hampton pupils for demonstrating eight months of real commitment to meeting deadlines whilst learning all the time. It’s been a pleasure to work with really responsible students.
