Benefits of a First News subscription

Trusted and impartial news

Founded in 2006, we are the original, independent news source for children. Our journalists and editors work tirelessly to bring children the most comprehensive age-appropriate coverage of the issues that matter.

Boosts kids’ love of reading

The National Literacy Trust carried out an independent evaluation with over 500 children. It showed that reading First News led to positive changes in children’s reading attitudes and attainment.

We have a lot of fun!

Our paper and app are jam-packed with puzzles, polls, competitions, exclusive interviews, gaming, science, sport, world news and more!

“If I had an unlimited budget I would buy this newspaper for every single child in the country.”

— Dennis Hopkins, First News subscriber
