New Southendian

Some sixth form students at the school have used their enrichment and wellbeing time to start a publication, made available online and in print, which aims to cover a wide range of topics, including current affairs, history, sport, politics, local news, reports from the school and interviews with staff.

This snapshot includes interviews with staff, reports on the SHSB archive project and the new Hitchcock library, and more.
