Any resources for free hosting?

Hey guys, I have just begun to manage my high school's newspaper, The Latin Weekly. I recently decided that a simple website or blog would be a lovely addition to the newspaper's nascent offerings. I need something simple to use, and hopefully free. I had thoughts of using tumblr, or a Wordpress blog and using my own domain, but the themes and ability to shape and control displayed content just don't match what the perfectionist inside of me wants. Does anyone have any links to any resource that provides free hosting for a Wordpress site? Or is there any way for me to host on my own?
