School Newspaper

In September 2022 we launched ‘The Drawbridge’ our very own Downend Newspaper,  which is “opening the doors for news”. The newspaper is planned, researched and written by our students, under the caring supervision of members of our Media Department.

The first edition was published in December 2022. This, and all subsequent editions, can be seen below:
