Could you write a funny sketch for Class Dismissed, aimed at children aged 6-12?

CBBC and BBC Writersroom are looking for funny writers who can write comedy sketches for children.

Class Dismissed is entering its third series, and its comedy producers are looking for new sketch-writing talent.

To submit, send up to two sketches featuring these characters from the show: Mr Capp, Mr Schofield, Mrs Tucker, and a brand new character, a gross-out teacher. Each sketch should be between one and five minutes long. Only submit work that is original and has not been previously commissioned, optioned or produced on any platform.

Submit to the Class Dismissed Sketch Writing Initiative by the closing date of 5 May.
