The Harrovian

The Harrovian is a weekly newspaper published by A4 sides long (including photos).

Articles are written on any topic. There are comment articles on current affairs, reports on school trips, society meetings and concerts amongst other things as well as the results of school matches. The only regular column is 'Here and There' which reports on achievements of Old Harrovians, staff weddings/babies and other notable events. . There have been and are other columns that persist for a term or so and then die out. For example, the scientific column 'The Strutt' (after John William Strutt 3rd Baron Rayleigh OH), satire columns such as the current 'Spyglass' column, recipe columns ('Two Fat Ladies') and university advice.

The Harrovian has been published under various guises and titles since 1828.[1] Previous titles include 'The Tyro' or 'The Record'. Almost all have survived in bound versions, though the earliest are simple Latin or Greek translations. At times through its history there have also been supplements, notably the War Supplements informing of the situation of Old Harrovians.

Other periodicals published by Harrow School are Goulash (a satire magazine), The Harrow Record (a twice-yearly roundup), Harrow Prep Schools Newsletter (essentially propaganda to attract potential new boys from prep schools) and 10 Miles to London (creative writing, etc. by boys), however, the current creative writing weekly is called The Peachey.
