Lockdown Lowdown – An Online News Project by S2


During the enforced stay at home during lockdown, pupils and staff have still been working away at learning and teaching as well as having to find different ways to work. These fantastic articles by S2 pupils under the direction of their English teacher have now been collated online.

As part of their recent studies in journalism, S2 have created an online news website containing their own articles and content. Many of the pupils have used the current pandemic as inspiration for their reports. As a result, they have created an impressive record of the impact of Covid-19 locally and personally.

Content will be updated regularly. Please check it out at:
