The Picador is a publication that serves to inform the Holderness School community and stimulate discourse through the thoughtful and respectful exchange of ideas, featuring the dynamic and insightful voice of the Holderness student body.


In light of our above mission statement, The Picador’s staff offers this charter to guide our reporting over the 2018-2019 school year.


This year, we commit ourselves to a few major goals.


First, as always, we seek to educate the Holderness School community about events on a local, national, and global scale.


Second, we are dedicated to representing the ideas of the community as a whole, not just the opinions of our staff. This will be accomplished by an open invitation to any Bull who wants to write an article, anonymous or named.


Third, we intend to foster diversity of thought through our unprecedented large staff size and by encouraging each journalist to write about a variety of topics throughout the year.


Finally, we will hold one another to the highest standards of journalistic integrity by labeling opinion pieces as such, avoiding excess bias in our standard reporting, citing sources accurately, and seeking the advice of professional writers in order to gain wisdom and expertise.
