The Library now has a fascinating School Histories Collection – a unique collection providing an unrivalled source of information and insight into the past. As such, it provides valuable material that tells the stories of a wide range of schools, in a variety of different genres. It also presents young people with a fascinating opportunity for investigating their school and community’s past, enabling them to find out about the history of their own and other schools –buildings, discipline, uniform, sports and former pupils.
