Tarporley High School is proud to announce that their internal, college-produced magazine entitled 'Term' has been nominated for a prize at the 'Shine' National School Media Awards. The Awards Ceremony will take place on 22nd June 2015, in Stationer's Hall, London, and five members of the student Editorial team will attend the event.

The magazine has been shortlisted for a number of Awards including best article and best front cover. The students await results with baited breath.
The Telegraph's senior journalist, Simon Heffer and editor of Cosmopolitan, Louise Court, will host the awards. The day will consist of a series of industry workshops led by media experts – Hearst Magazine will give insights into the publishing industry, Sarah Douglas, Social Media Manager at the Sun, will give information regarding social media and Steve Marchant from 'The Cartoon Museum' will teach cartoon drawing.
All shortlisted schools will receive at least a certificate on the day. Mrs Dunning and Mrs McMillan, the teachers who assist the sixth form editorial team, are thrilled with their success: 'We are so pleased that all the hard work, organisation and commitment of the team, have resulted in this accolade. At a busy time in terms of exam pressure, it is amazing that a magazine of such quality was produced. The breadth and range of the articles were very impressive.'
The Editorial team already have plans for a bumper edition of their magazine in the summer term. Many students wish to pursue careers in the Media Industry or to study English further at University. Annabelle Moss, Assistant Editor, stated: "We are thrilled to be shortlisted for this year's Shine School Media Awards. The magazine involved a lot of hard work and to be recognised in this way is amazing."
Mrs McMillan added, "Whatever the outcome, this will be a fantastic experience and a most impressive addition to next year's UCAS statements and University applications. We look forward to new, enthusiastic Year 12 students joining the Editorial team in September!"
Ffion Eaton is an assistant Head Teacher at THS.
