The Ashford School Archive is a unique collection of memorabilia relating to the history of Ashford School and Ashford Friars Prep School, consisting of photographs, objects and documents.
The school has committed to a long-term project bringing the Archive into greater order and, for the first time, making searchable digital copies of our valuable archive photographs, publications and other documents which will be made available for all alumni, parents and current pupils. To access the digital Archive please enter here.
The project is led by David Young and Sandra Noel (1961, Pilgrims). If any alumni are interested in volunteering for this project, have an enquiry or wish to donate archive materials please contact David at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sandra at email@example.com
In 1995 Patricia Earlam, the former Senior Mistress, retired after 37 years at Ashford and became the school's official archivist. In 1998, the centenary year, Pat compiled and produced an Illustrated Centenary History of Ashford School of which she was justifiably very proud.
Pat Earlam's book is a 160-page all-encompassing history of the school and a fascinating read for everyone, no matter when they were at Ashford; you will find photographs and writings to stir forgotten memories. In addition to the electronic copy of the book which can be found in the Digital Archive, soft-back copies are available from the school on request upon payment of £20 as a donation to the Bursary Fund of The Ashford School Foundation. Please contact the Development & Alumni Office at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Patricia Earlam sadly passed away peacefully in February 2005.
