The Elizabethan is the main magazine of Westminster School and was begun by pupils 1874. Although now only published annually the magazine was originally produced on an almost monthly basis and provides great insight into the school, its staff and pupils.

The Elizabethan includes school notes, match reports, features, correspondence and alumni news. The wartime issues include lists of men who have enrolled and details of those who died. For those who are descended from or related to Old Westminsters, this resource may provide some insight into their lives and characters – as long as they warranted a mention in the magazine!
