The School Museum – An Exciting Discovery

5th February 2014

We knew that a School Museum was established by Rev. Eves in the 1890s and continued for some 40 or 50 years. 

Until April last year, we believed the contents of the Museum had been lost. Then, during refurbishment of the Waterhouse building, a sealed cupboard was opened by our Estates Team.

Inside, in cardboard boxes, were a number of artefacts from the Museum. Since last April, we have been working to identify, and establish provenance, for the items. Photos of some of the items will be available soon and if anyone remembers the Museum, or can help identify any artefact, please contact us on ppc.museum@prior.pursglove.ac.uk
