Your First News subscription

Founded in 2006, First News is an independent weekly newspaper designed for children aged 7-14.

Available in-print and on our app, we bring children the most comprehensive, age-appropriate coverage of top stories from around the world.

Our carefully curated content includes quick news, special features, science, nature, fun facts & puzzles, sports, gaming, reviews and more!

Reading First News has been proven to help kids improve their critical thinking skills and broaden their horizons.

We empower kids to separate fact from fake news.

Explore and discuss top stories and thought-provoking articles together or give them the independence to dive into the news themselves, knowing that it’s news you can trust.

A newspaper and more

With the First News app, kids can dive into the latest daily news stories, watch engaging videos from our BAFTA award-winning show in partnership with Sky Kids and have fun with word games and puzzles related to the week’s stories.

Screen time you can feel good about!

With over 2.6 million readers each week, and over 17 years of reporting for children, it’s no wonder 9 out of 10 subscribers said they would recommend us to a friend! (Customer Satisfaction Survey 2023).
