The Week Junior

Dennis Publishing


The Week Junior is the UK’s fastest-growing magazine. With a market-leading ABC increase of 36.7% paid-for print subscribers year-on-year, and a 26.1% year-on-year total circulation increase (Jan–Dec 2018), this weekly current affairs publication for young people continues to prove that there is a huge appetite for high-quality, factual content, and that print remains important to children.

The magazine’s editorial standards are consistently high. Every page of every issue is thoroughly researched, carefully written and forensically fact-checked. Its well-balanced mix of news stories, ideas and information both reflects the breadth of interests of 8–14-year-olds and engages them with new concepts . The magazine speaks directly to its readers in a clear, calm and unpatronising voice; complex subjects are explained sensitively and objectively, giving children the information they need to make sense of the world they live in and to form their own opinions about it. The pages are packed with eye-catching pictures while the strict design principles that underpin the layouts ensure that they are easy to navigate and accessible to readers of all abilities. It is a magazine that is made to be read (really read, not just looked at).

Since launching in November 2015 The Week Junior has gained tens of thousands of loyal and engaged readers and won awards for its editorial excellence. Last year The Week Junior’s Editor in Chief, Anna Bassi was crowned Editor’s Editor of the Year by her peers at the BSME awards.
