New photo galleries: sports and more!

27th November 2012

Our website continues to grow, with the addition of hockey, cricket, netball and athletics photographs, as well as more photographs of staff and students.

Several new history articles have been added, as well as some superb work undertaken by archive volunteer Sam Adams.

Back in January 2012, Sam began the task of recording information from the grammar school ledgers onto a spread sheet. This is painstaking work, as not all of the teachers had the tidiest of handwriting.

So far, Sam has recorded thousands of entries, making it possible for us to look up almost any alumnus of the grammar school in a matter of seconds. We have made all entries over one century old available on the website, and you can find them here. Sam has also recorded the girls of the preparatory class, click here for more.

We hope that this resource will be especially useful to people researching family history. If you would like to know more, or if you have a family history enquiry that we might be able to help with, please get in touch on ppc.museum@prior.pursglove.ac.uk .
