The Foundation is in the process of systematically archiving documents, photographs and other memorabilia relating to the College's history. The College cloister also now boasts a complete set of whole school photographs from St Bede's to the present day.
Our College Librarian and Archivist have been cataloguing a variety of material which is now available in pdf form. The pdfs provide a fascinating insight into the history of the College including key documents such as the deeds, the admissions registers and Year Books, plus information on the Benedictine period, St Mary's Priory and St Bede's.
Comments Librarian, Celia Scott, "By its very nature the archive is constantly changing as things are added to it. The next stage will be to digitalise materials with the hope of making the live Past Perfect database available to OPs and other interested parties in the future, so they can search and see the materials we hold in the Archive for themselves."
