"This print edition is a collection of the best articles from the three online editions we have produced over the last year," Editor In Chief Christina Storey wrote in her Editors Note, an exclusive addition to the Print Edition.
"We’ve had 43 writers contributing over 100 articles which reflects the amount of hard work and dedication my brilliant team have put into the magazine this year."
The Print Edition, constructed and designed by Luke O'Sullivan, is professionally printed and distributed throughout Berkhamsted School, with copies going in libraries, houserooms and various other locations.
This year 160 copies of INK will be distributed to these locations, to contributors to the magazine, and sold at school events.
"Our readers clearly enjoy reading INK, as the magazine has had over 50,000 website views since the very first edition of INK", continued Storey.
The 2014-15 academic year saw INK introduce a new Economic section, headed by Ben Shelley, alongside a brand new website design and multimedia content, including 'The Inkerview', a short dramatised film recreating INK's encounter with UKIP's Nigel Farage.
The team will be fronted by Sally Nolan as Editor In Chief, with Chloe Vialou-Clark as Deputy.
It was also announced that the Features section will be retired, giving way to a new Global section fronted by Harriet Fisk.
Freddie Sallis will assume the position of Head of Media following the departure of Luke O'Sullivan, who's been in the media team since 2012, and created the original INK website.
"Luke has been invaluable to the success of our school magazine", said Ms Ireland, the magazines' manager.
"From its conception – 3 years ago – he has worked tirelessly developing the magazine to ensure it looks the most professional it can be."
"I wish the best of luck to the new Editorial Team, and strongly believe Freddie will be outstanding as Head of Media", said Luke.
Since its launch three and a half years ago, INK has become one of the most sought after clubs to be a part of at Berkhamsted School, with 26 letters of application to beome an Editor in the 2015-16 academic year.
Students looking for a career in journalism and other media fields receive invaluable experience participating in the writing of, editing, organising, designing and publishing a professional publication.
INK has so far won 3 Shine Awards, and been highly commended for numerous others, with Luke being "Highly Commended" for Outstanding Pupil in 2014.
The 2015 Print Edition of INK will be entered into the 2015 Shine School Media Awards, the finale of which will be held on Monday 22nd June 2015.
Read the Print Edition online here, or find it in school. Details on where to purchase INK will be unveiled shortly. Contributors to INK 2014-15 will receive a complementary copy.
