Shine news

Can the school magazine survive the social media age?

The Autumn Term is here and as we launch the new season of Shine, we’re really delighted to be featured in The Spectator.

‘Among the entries for the recent 2019 competition a number of themes cropped up again and again: concerns over domestic and international politics, the environment, self-image and mental health.’
