The College produces a wide range of publications each year. These include information booklets for the students at different stages in their progress through the preparatory and secondary departments, a news magazine, yearbooks and a compendium of student writing.

Students are provided with a number of documents designed to help them understand the options available to them at various times and make the choices best suited to their aptitudes and ambitions. The Preparatory Department Information Handbook and the Preparatory Department Extra-Curricular Activities Guide give parents and students a complete overview of the primary school programme, and the weekly Bulletin sent to parents ensures that they are kept informed about all aspects of school life. Advice to New Students provides new entrants to 2nd-6th year with essential information about the College, the curriculum, extra-curricular activities and other aspects of school life. Option Booklets are issued to incoming first, fourth and fifth year students to help them decide which courses to choose at these important times.
The students themselves write and publish a number of magazines every year. The College news magazine Grapevine appears at the end of each term. It provides lively, illustrated accounts of events which have taken place in school during the preceding months. Transition Year students write, edit and publish their own Transition Year Yearbook, which comes out in June, shortly after the appearance of the Sixth Year Yearbook, timed to coincide with Valedictory Evening in May. The most important literary event of the year is the publication of the arts magazine, The Wine Dark Sea, a creative writing production which showcases the best of student poetry and prose.
