Since September 2016
We’ve made impressive progress since we started
Tony Gallagher, Deputy Editor, The Times
“I’m passionate about media literacy and I cannot speak highly enough about The Student View. They do a brilliant job of teaching students about the perils of fake news and how to sift fact from fiction in an increasingly partisan age – a task that is vital today. Their enthusiasm is infectious. I can’t wait to work with them again.”
Head of English at Woodcote High School, Harriet Cox
“The students were thrilled – said it was so fun to delve into a career based session rather than “just English”. I love showing them where English and general interest in the world and events can take you. This was perfect for that.”
Our work to create local news content in some of the UK’s most underserved areas would not be possible without the help of our generous supporters.
Our programme is run by a small team of staff and several dedicated volunteers who provide their time to help teach, edit, and coordinate activities with the schools. We rely on grants and donations to provide our services to an increasing number of schools.
We work with a variety of corporate, educational and media organisations. We would love to hear from you if you’re doing something you think we could get involved with, or if you’d like to work with us in some way.
Our work is driven by our staff, journalist volunteers, trustees and advisory board members.
