Students from Kings Priory School have been making the news for real as part of BBC News School Report. 
See some of their stories below.


Pupils learn about fire safety

The Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service visited Kings Priory to tell the children of the equipment that they use, what they do and about fire safety.

The Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue service gave the Year 7 pupils a small tour around the fire engine to show them different parts of the machine. They allowed 2 small groups to look at and even hold some of the equipment that they use on a regular basis.

First of all, they talked about the equipment that they had to wear to protect them and then they allowed the children to wear the protective clothing, which was a little too big on most of our Year 7 pupils!


WATCH: England Cricketer in town

Pupils from the Senior School recently interviewed local cricketer Mark Wood about cricket and his sporting inspirations.

The England batsman, who made his International test debut in 2015, came to Kings Priory School to discuss his sporting inspirations and the growing interest of young peple playing Cricket.

Wood, who was born in Ashington, Northumberland, then led a 'quick cricket' session with some of the pupils.

See his interview below:
