Preview – Politics Magazine & Model United Nations
Preview is Caterham School’s in-house Political journal. It was set up in 1999 by Will Moy, David Bishop, Colin Hoad and Alex Steer. Their intention from the outset was to create a publication that would include articles by students, teachers and high profile contributors from the world of national and international politics.
Equally important was the desire to create a magazine that was essentially run by, published by and launched by Sixth Form students. Ultimately though, the trail blazing editors were keen to produce something whereby students could share their opinions on a range of issues to a wider audience – and they were adamant that those opinions could be freely and openly aired. I am pleased to say that subsequent editors have been true to the aspirations of the founders and Preview continues to be a magazine that challenges its readers and champions free thinking and freedom of expression.
Preview is a student led magazine on Politics and current affairs. Although it is especially relevant to those studying A Level politics, all interested sixth form students are very welcome and encouraged to take part. Students will be given time to research, plan and submit articles for the magazine which will be professionally printed.
Model United Nations
In the Model UN students role-play as delegates to the United Nations and simulate UN committees. The format of Model United Nations allows for flexible debate centred around students taking on the role of a particular country. The club is student-led, you will have the chance to select debates and focus on the aspects of international relations which interest you the most.
Both activities are a great way to build leadership skills, work as a team and strengthen your personal statement for UCAS.
