Our Archive Room is currently based in Nightingale and contains a unique collection of memorabilia relating to the history of Ashford School and Ashford Friars Prep School, consisting of photographs, objects and documents.
Ashford School is committed to cataloguing and preserving our existing material and rebuilding the archive with new material offered by former pupils and friends.
If any alumni are interested in volunteering to assist in the archives, please get in touch by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
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. You can access our digital archive here.
The Archive includes a digital version of Patricia Earlam’s 1998 Illustrated Centenary History of Ashford School. Pat, the former Senior Mistress, retired after 37 years at Ashford and became the School’s official archivist, compiling and producing for the School’s centenary a 160-page all-encompassing history of the School and a fascinating read for everyone, no matter when they were at Ashford School. Sadly, Patricia Earlam passed away peacefully in February 2005.
