BBC School Report 2016



Welcome from the

MCA News Team


Welcome to Manor Croft Academy

Manor Croft Academy is situated in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire.  The Academy was established in September 2013 to cater for 11 to 16 year old young people of the area.  We enjoy a wide curriculum and have a full extra curriculum timetable.

One of the extra curriculum activities is our News Team, this club runs every Tuesday during lunchtime in the library.  The club enables us to develop our skills, learning how to select newsworthy items, conduct interviews as well as editing and publishing news reports.

This year our Academy News Team is made up of KS3 Students who have all shown an interest in media or journalism as a career option.  We hope that the pressure and fun had today will enhance their enthusiasm to follow this career path.
