Match reporting project

A new writing project for the 2017-18 academic year, we are pleased to annouce the launch of 'Mini Match', in collaboration with Cambridge Independent journalists.

Working with our trained teaching staff and local reporters, Mini Match provides a unique opportunity for Year 5 and 6 children to write a Cambridge United match report on a first-team game. These reports are the culmination of a series of classroom based sessions that allow children to develop their journalistic skills under the expert guidance of professional journalists. Sessions involve reporting upon school-based games, the editing process, how to work within the constraints of a word count and a sports photography workshop. Participants in the project will receive free tickets to watch a game, including a tour of the stadium and press areas beforehand.

The final match reports will then be judged by a panel of experts and three winners will be published in local media outlets.

For more information or to enquire how you might become involved in this project, please contact Tim Walker, our Head of Education:
