Three BWS Year 10 Students (Toby R, Joe P and Robert G) are working as ‘School Correspondents’ for the Salisbury Journal, writing at least one article per week about events taking place around the school.  While not all articles are published in the local paper as several schools are vying weekly for the one published slot, this blog showcases their hard work through-out the school year as well as giving a flavour of events taking place at BWS.
