Your First News subscription 

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

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

Our carefully curated content covers it all – from the top stories from around the world to science, technology, nature, sports, and arts.

Your child will gain valuable insights into the world around them, developing critical thinking skills and broadening their horizons.

As a trusted and reliable news source, we ensure that your child receives accurate and age-appropriate news, empowering them to separate fact from fiction.

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.

More than just a newspaper

The First News app is specifically designed to enhance this even further! Kids can listen to and read short daily news stories, watch videos from our BAFTA award-winning video show made in conjunction with Sky Kids – and play word games and puzzles all based around stories happening that week.

Finally, 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).
