Lord Mayor of Richmond

Our journalists meet the Lord Mayor of Richmond

This website is dedicated to news about Barnes Primary School written by the students for the students.

Every week, we have have a small band of student reporters who write about recent events at Barnes Primary. Sometimes, we get to interview influential people in the community, like the Lord Mayor of Richmond in the picture above, or our MPs for the area. Other times, we interview important people in the school community – our teachers, dinner ladies and Mr. Hartley. We also create slideshows, videos, competitions, quizzes and puzzles.  

Our aim is to write stories that will inform the school community about what’s happening “on the ground” at Barnes Primary. We update the site at least once a week. So, if you have a story to tell, search our one of our budding  journalists.
