The Oundelian

Originally founded under the title, The Laxtonian: The Oundle School Magazine in 1876, The Oundelian has been in print for 140 years. Published at the end of the Summer Term, the magazine features articles about life at school, taking in drama, music, sports, society lectures and trips. Richly illustrated, it also showcases the fine arts, essays and creative writing contributions from pupils from all year groups. The editorial team comprises Sixth Formers and convenes every Wednesday to commission and edit articles throughout the year.

The Oundle Chronicle

The Oundle Chronicle is produced by a group of 20 pupils drawn from the Fifth Form and above, who meet on Wednesday afternoons as part of the Community Action programme. A tabloid of approximately 24 pages, the Chronicle was founded in 1991. The paper publishes news and features based on people and events in the town of Oundle and East Northamptonshire, and is published twice a year. It is delivered free to every house in Oundle, and is also distributed to shops in the surrounding villages. All printing costs are funded by advertising from local businesses, and profits are donated to local charities, allowing pupils an opportunity to gain an insight into running a non-profit business. The Oundle Chronicle has been winner of the Best Community Initiative award two years running, and winner of the Best Newspaper at the Shine School Media Awards.
