Take advantage of our Back to School offer

First News, the UK’s only children’s newspaper, is jam-packed with loads of great features which help children make sense of the world around them. It’s bursting with engaging and interactive articles, eye-catching photos, and big ideas – a virtual trip round the world every week – with the latest news, sport, technology, interviews, debates and pages of boredom-busting interactive puzzles and games.

First News fuels curiosity, inspires conversation and helps children form opinions about the world and their place in it. We believe, with a passion, that young people should be agents of their own future. Children are 27% of the world’s population but 100% of the future! And, for the world to become a better place, the next generation needs to be better informed than the last.



My children love First News

Zak generally disappears for an hour or so on a Friday after school to read it and I’m ashamed to admit that he generally knows more about current affairs than me thanks to his weekly newspaper reading. I love that First News is teaching him about what happens in the world in a sensitive but informative and factual manner. Our First News subscription is honestly worth every single penny.

I love First News

There’s so much to read and there are so many cool facts. I race my brother at the puzzles every week but my favorite section is ‘Crazy But True’ – I always have something weird to tell my friends about!

Since subscribing to First News my daughter joins in with Sunday morning paper reading and is able to participate in the many conversations... we often read it together which is fun.
