The Leigh Academy are proud to have been on the national news on BBC1 to help launch their new initiative to educate young people about fake news. Their Media Editor described the Post 16 students he interviewed as ‘hugely impressive’ and having ‘a highly developed sense both of the existence of fake news, and of the means by which various agents of misinformation try to spread falsehood online.’

Well done to all who were involved in the filming.
