The River

The River is a newspaper run by Kingston University journalism students. It covered local and student-focused news and features.

It was nominated for the Press Gazette Student Newspaper of the Year award while I was working on it, and has since gone on to win other media awards.

My first-ever published story

faith school quotas story
My first-ever published story

I wrote the above news story in my second year studying journalism at Kingston University, London. The government were discussing plans to set quotas for faith schools to take pupils from other religious faiths or those with no set faith.
I got this local reaction from the headteacher of a Catholic primary school in Kingston, which was published in the Kingston journalism student’s paper The River.
