Media Elements


All boys are encouraged to join the very many clubs and societies. Some are organised by academic departments or are related to games and sports; others are less easy to classify, such as the Debating Society, the Digital Photography Club, the Law Society and the Conservation group. There are clubs for literature and art history, for bridge and for chess. The Palmerston Club hears political speakers from the outside world. The Marmots go mountaineering.

The most important School magazine is The Harrovian. It began life well over a century ago and for many years has appeared almost every week during term-time. It is produced by boy editors and printed in the School's Secretariat.

The School owns a farm which boys help to run - looking after the herd of Longhorn cattle and maintaining the farm buildings. Through Community Service and the Planned Giving committee, many boys at all levels of the School are regularly involved in work with different groups of people in need of help and care. The aims are to meet the needs of the community and to develop the awareness and potential of the boys who participate.
