A group of our students will be making the news for real on 19 March 2015 as they take part in BBC News School Report. We aim to publish the news by 1600 GMT on the News Day, so please save this page as a favourite and return to it later.  In the meantime, take a look at what our students produced last year.

Our Animals at Ansford Academy

Here at Ansford we have many animals; we have a dog called Osian which is looked after by Ms Evans and her tutor group.

We have two goats called Bill and Greg who are looked after by the goat club (year 7 - 11) and we have the chickens.  

We have 2 chicks, 4 hens and one cockerel.  They are all looked after by the chicken club (year 7-11)


Interview with our BBC News Reporters

Casey, Oscar, Callom and Casey.

Why did you focus on the animals?

Because the animals are an important asset to the community at Ansford.  All the students enjoy and respect the animals, their privacy, their home.

Why do you thing the animals are important?

The animals are important because they help the students learn, it makes the academy feel more like a home than a school.  If people are having a bad day the animals can make them feel better and a lot happier.
