SGS Historian: award-winning magazine reaches fourth edition


The fourth edition of the ‘SGS Historian’, a magazine created by Lower Sixth pupils in the History department, is now available to read online and in print.

The magazine won back-to-back Young Historian Awards for the second and third editions and this year’s version is also of high quality.

Put together over the last few months of the academic year by a dedicated team, this year’s issue contains an eclectic selection of articles, trip reports, interviews and film reviews on periods as diverse as the Fourth Crusade to the German occupation of the Channel Islands during World War Two.

Student Alex Malone said: “We decided that we wouldn’t have an overall theme due to our extremely varied historical interests and by doing this we believe it allowed each and every one of us the creative freedom to fully express ourselves. I couldn’t be more proud of what we have been able to create and I do hope you enjoy reading the magazine as much as we have enjoyed putting it together!”

 

Head of Sixth Form Mr David Stone added: “This year’s group have produced a really impressive magazine, both in terms of content and aesthetics. The fact that this edition does not have an umbrella ‘theme’ should be considered as a strength, reflective of the broad range of interests that exists within this cohort of interested and engaged historians; many of whom have looked far beyond the narrow confines of the A-level curriculum. This will stand them in good stead for future study of History or other disciplines.”

This year’s contributors were Jamie Carson, Phoebe Micklefield, Alex Malone, Claire Murphy, Josh Brougham, Linton Armstrong, Archie Eady-Gurr, Alfred Bradshaw, Head of Art Mr Richard Davies, Modern Foreign Languages teacher Frau Kerstin Christmann and Mr Stone.
