First News


First News is the leading source of news and news-based learning for kids 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 science and technology to nature, sports, and arts. 

Through multi-level reading activities exploring worldwide news, First News Education supports lessons in English, Citizenship, PSHE and across the curriculum. Children will gain valuable insights into the world around them, developing critical thinking skills and broadening their horizons.

At home, we provide a trusted and reliable source of news - empowering children to separate fact from fiction and allowing parents to explore and discuss stories and thought-provoking articles together or give them the independence to dive into the news themselves.

It is our goal to equip children at home and in school with an enriched knowledge of the world and the fundamental reading, writing and oracy skills they need to succeed.

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).
