We welcome enquiries from all researchers, whether you are doing post-graduate study of the history of Education, or are looking for inspiration for a school project, and everyone in between!
We hold not only the historic Jill Grey Collection which holds more than 30,000 historical education books, but our own Benchmark Collection covering the past 200 years of school history, allowing you to dig into topics from Victorian science education to the very earliest formalisation of children's "A,B,Cs"
We also have extensive collections of
- school needlework
- Historic school photos & postcards
- School reward medals and certificates
- School furniture and its background information
- School-related objects and emphemera from from the last 200 years!
Whatever your area of interest, we look forward to working with you. Please contact us to book an appointment to view our collection as most of it is in storage.
