Kingsbridge Community College – Abridged online

This online publication is a worthy winner of this category.  Abridged impressed the judges with its creative and striking cover.  The relevance of the strong black and white image and the focus of the magazine headline immediately enticed the reader to turn the page and find out more.


Highly Commended


Headington School – AQILA

The judges liked the composition and layout of this cover.  The images with different perspectives are appealing and intriguing.  The subject matter offers the reader a flavour of the issues within the publication.


St George’s School for Girls – Independent Women

This A5 entry was clear in its purpose and direction.   The cover benefited from a good left hand guide to content and a strong logo.


The King Edward VI School – Student Review

With strong colours and bold lettering, this cover is traditional and well executed.   Well-spaced out and clear information offers the reader a choice of leading statements each followed by a suggestion.  This is a clever lead into the magazine’s articles.




The newspaper entries continue to be of a very high standard indeed.  The reporting is excellent and promises a sound future for these young journalists.




City of London School – The Citizen

The judges commented on the thoughtful layout of both news and headlines alongside a careful selection of subject matter and a strong and relevant choice of image.   The judges however questioned having two different Mastheads on the cover.


Highly Commended  

The John Whitgift Academy newspaper JWA Journal is a good newsy read with lots of different types of stories and articles – a variety of images show activity and fun in the community.   The cover is well laid out with a strong masthead and logo.  The judges commented on a good choice of font, clear headlines and structure.


Oundle School – Oundle Chronicle immediately commands attention and interest with its strong masthead and clean layout.  Again, the almost professional appearance of this newspaper continues to shine amongst the top echelons of the competition.

Highly Recommended
