Pupils make history with the SGS Historian

Lower Sixth historians have produced a new magazine that gives readers a pupil’s insight into the characters and events that have shaped our history.

The magazine, edited by Rachel Whatley, features written contributions from eight pupils whilst Head of Sixth Form Mr Stone also provides an article.

The theme of the first edition is Revolutionaries and contains articles on Oliver Cromwell, Martin Luther King Jr, the Iranian Revolution and the Suffragettes. There is also a review of Mikhail Bulgakov’s book ‘A Country Doctor’s Notebook’ and an interview with world renowned historian Michael Wood.

Commenting on the pupils’ new magazine, Mr Stone said: “They pupils have produced an impressive piece of historical journalism and I would like to thank all of the pupils involved in putting the first issue of this new publication together for their efforts this year. It is a new venture for Sixth Form historians at Stockport Grammar School and they have set the bar high for future cohorts with a selection of pieces that extend class based studies and explore new areas of interest. Well done!”

The editorial team consisted of Rachel Whatley, Patrick Magner, Harriet Lambon-Ralph, Lilia Sebouai, Oliver Robinson, Arvin Araghi, Emmily Fowler and Will Rothwell. Design and production was done by Oliver Robinson, Will Rothwell and Mrs Phelan.
