Pupil Publications


Piccalilli magazine was set up in 2002 by a number of Sixth Form creative writing enthusiasts who wished to showcase the best of Marlborough pupils’ poetry and prose.

Since 2006, when it was first professionally printed, the magazine has been published twice each year, in a Winter and Summer edition. As well as poetry and prose fiction, Piccalilli now includes artwork, prose non-fiction, interviews and reviews.

Special Publication – Beethoven in Lockdown

A special pupil publication devoted to the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth was conceived during Lockdown. In many ways there was no one more appropriate at that moment to celebrate as Beethoven was famously in a kind of ‘lockdown’ and forced isolation for much of his life.

Pupils from all year groups and beaks from many departments were involved in the writing, editing and illustrations for this project. The end result is not only a home-grown cultural feast but a collective home-grown masterpiece.
