We were delighted to welcome ITV News anchor Alistair Stewart OBE to our school to talk to the year 7 & 8 students about working as a journalist.
In a full assembly with, two year groups, the students listened intently as Mr Stewart described what it means to work as an impartial journalist covering all of the biggest stories in the world.
He also told some wonderful stories of covering events that have changed the world such as the fall of the Berlin wall and how studying history, as well as English, can be of great benefit to anyone who would like to go into journalism.
There was then a question and answer session from the students and Mr Stewart kindly answered some great questions.
Thank you to Mr Ritchie for setting up and organising the talk and to Alistair Stewart for taking the time to speak to our 7 & 8s.
