The students of Tarporley Sixth Form produce their own Sixth Form magazine, ‘Term’, which has gone to win national awards at the SHINE Media Awards in London on numerous occasions. The magazine involves lots of students from both year groups – many of whom are then inspired to study English or Journalism at university. One of their articles was recently used in ‘Grazia’ magazine over the Christmas period.
The donation from The George Heath Foundation will be used for some equipment for the magazine, notably, a camera, video recorder and some lighting.
The magazine team are a brilliant bunch, and so far over 50 students have been involved since it’s inception a couple of years ago.
The donation also feels extra special to us as Media was a subject George really enjoyed and was good at while in the 6th Form, before he began his Journalism studies at Staffordshire University.
