Adding to the Collection

Archives > Adding to the Collection

The School Archive has been in existence since 2005 and has been growing steadily thanks to donations of material from OGs and staff.

Our photograph collection has expanded considerably owing to the Foundation reunions when OGs have kindly looked out their old pictures for all to enjoy.

The only area under represented is uniform, apart from a couple of OG Club blazers, and I would very much like to acquire some small items such as caps, badges or ties.

Our collection of Grasshopper magazines still has a few gaps which I would love to fill if anyone has any they would be willing to part with.
