Prior Park College Digital Archives

Welcome to the Prior Park College Archive

Our aim is to collect and maintain a comprehensive compendium of magazines, photographs and other relevant documents in order to create a permanent and researchable archive of Prior Park from its inception to the present day.

Primarily aimed at past and present pupils and staff but also available for others with an interest in the school, it utilises digital optical character recognition (OCR) technology so that visitors can search the collection both by date and by name.

The archive was launched in the Autumn of 2016 with an initial collection of 2,000 documents and photographs that cover the years 1920 to 2014. As you will note when visiting the site, a number of items are missing. Do you have them? If you do please contact Carole Laverick using the contact details below.

This is only a start. It is our intention to build a truly comprehensive collection of items and to do that we need your help. Please search every nook and cranny, scour the loft and the garage, dig out those old magazines and photos, play and concert programmes and let us know us what you have found.

We have started with Prior Park College but we will be looking for items relevant to Cricklade, the Paragon and, in the fullness of time, Prior Park Gibraltar.

Inevitably there is a cost, so even if you cannot provide any items please consider making a financial contribution. This would enable us to upload more of the many documents we already hold. Simon Morgan (1975) and Anthony McQuiggan PPA 1974 have made a start with generous donations and we hope his example will encourage others to do the same.

Please contact Carole Laverick to offer any items for inclusion in the archive or to make a donation. When making a donation please indicate if there is a particular year that you wish your donation to benefit.

Please also read our Copyright and Conditions of use. We are very conscious of our duty to you and to all those whose records are contained within our archive.

This is your story. Please help us tell it for you.
