The Jill Dando News Centre

What is The Jill Dando News Centre?

April 2019 marked twenty years since we lost the extraordinary BBC presenter, Jill Dando. Having studied at Worle Community School, Dando is a huge local success story. Students from PCSA - along with those across the other schools in The Priory Learning Trust (TPLT) - have taken inspiration from her positive journalistic work and created a legacy in her home town.


Journalists are also joined by their furry assistant, Jeffrey (the King Charles Spaniel and TPLT Mascot) who visits the schools across the Trust as part of the Jill Dando News Centre.

Every week budding journalists across all year groups meet at the Jill Dando News Centre in the heart of the school to interview, write, photograph, film and edit the latest ‘hot off the press’ news. Unlike so much of today’s press, the journalists follow one rule: every story must be a positive and inspiring one.
