Archives

Welcome to the St Andrew’s College Archives

Thanks to the work of several dedicated Archivists over the decades, St Andrew’s College has a comprehensive collection of school archival material.

Our Archive collection of documents includes printed and hand-written registers, school magazines,  photograph albums, financial ledgers, committee minute-books, maps and plans, postcards, prints, school magazines, sporting and cultural events programmes, speeches, original correspondence, original trust deeds and contracts, individual pupil records, reports and results,  family records, House records, sporting reports and results, published books and other papers by and about Old Andreans.

There are thousands of photographs, movies, videos and DVDs.

There are also numerous objects  ranging from sporting memorabilia, scientific instruments, trophies, items of school uniforms, flags, memorial stones, chalices, furniture and sculptures.

The Archives are available to members of the Andrean community, and by appointment to the wider public.

We are always delighted to add relevant items or information to the collection, which may enrich the understanding of College’s colourful history.

The Antony Clark Andrean Resource Centre (ARC)

The Antony Roy Clark Resource Centre (otherwise called ARC) is situated in the oldest section of the oldest building on campus (Upper House), and was officially opened on 20 November 2010. It is a beautiful venue which lends itself as a museum to an appealing display of historical artefacts.   

On display are numerous medals and other war memorabilia, priceless chalices and trophies, Headmasters’ portraits, books and a variety of school memorabilia.

The ARC is also used for meetings, functions and presentations.  

The School Archives

While a small percentage of material is constantly on display in ARC, the vast majority of our archival collection is stored in a fire-proof, secure facility on campus.

All items pertaining to the history of St Andrew’s College are collected, catalogued, filed and preserved within Archives. Many documents and photographs have been digitised for easy access and this is a continual process.

Who to Contact

Visitors to St Andrew’s College who wish to visit the ARC are asked to contact Angie Marriner in the Foundation Office or to make enquiries at Reception.

If Old Andreans or families of Old Andreans have any photographs, memorabilia or interesting documents which they would consider donating or lending to the school, or which they would permit to be scanned and filed in Archives, please contact Angie Marriner in the Foundation Office.
