Best Magazine

Judged by
The Shine Judging Committee

Sponsored by


King Edward VI Handsworth School for Girls
The Beacon

The engaging illustration on the front cover of The Beacon sets the tone for this hugely enjoyable edition. Our judges admired ‘a well-edited, complete piece of work’. It was felt the magazine would appeal to students across the school with its blend of newsy editorial and fun features: a special mention goes to the ‘Teachers’ Pets’ competition!

Highly Commended

Tarporley High School & Sixth Form College

Capturing multiple strands of student zeitgiest, Term is a great magazine with a blend of strong design, innovative art direction and challenging themes.
