Media Team

Here at Waingels, there are always so many amazing opportunities and events going on, and sometimes it can be hard to keep up. That’s why we have created our Waingels Media Team, made up of all year groups, to keep you in the know of all the latest news whether it be on social media, our school website, in our school magazine, through our half termly newsletters or on our TV screens.

School Magazine 

Our School Magazine 'Topical' is a student lead project; designed, written and edited by a range of year groups. Topical is issued electronically every half term to all students. Hard copies can be found in our school Reception, Yellow Zone Reading Room and Sixth Form Common Room. To view our school magazine please click here.


You may have seen our newsletters floating around, these are written by the students and staff collaboratively meaning that everything you read is coming straight from the source. To view our whole school newsletters please click here.

Photography and Videography

Being part of the Media Team is not just about writing, it's also about capturing the moment in a photo. We have a number of students in the team that regularly help out with taking photographs at school events to support our articles for the newsletter or magazine as well as creating short videos. To view our photo gallery please click here. Some of the videos can be found on our YouTube channel here

Not only is it great fun being part of the Media Team, but it's also a fantastic way to work on your journalistic talent, digital media skills, and creative writing. This makes it an incredible experience to put on your CV or UCAS application! If you want to get involved, you can email us at, or speak to Miss Yiannapas.
