Bear Grylls’ centre trains journalists of the future

by Abigail Cook

Three students have so loved their school journalism club that they are now pursuing careers in the industry.

Ciaran Morrison, Alex Nutley and Abigail Cook, all aged 16, have been part of John O’ Gaunt’s journalism club in Hungerford, trained by journalists and editors in their Bear Grylls Inspiration Centre.

Now they are training up Year 7 and 8 students to be student journalists in the centre that was opened by the adventurer two years ago.

Ciaran wants to be football journalist, Alex a photographer and Abigail a travel reporter working across the world.

JOG is a high-achieving, high ambition school.

Principal Alan Henderson said: “These students have been exceptional in their attitude, creativity and enthusiasm. There is no doubt that they will go far in their careers.”
