Did you go to Preston Lodge High School?

Did you attend Preston Lodge High School? If so then this post might be for you.

The archives are delighted to announce that we are working in partnership with Preston Lodge on a project to store, digitise and catalogue an extensive collection of images from the schools history.

This collection goes beyond the traditional school photographs and shows students and teachers at work and play with images dating back as far as 1924.

With the help of our volunteers, archive staff are currently working their way through the collection – there are already some brilliant images.

Recognise anyone? We’re fortunate that most of the photographs have names attached but if there is any information you can provide please get in touch.

Once complete, all the images will be available to view through the John Gray Centre website. It’s likely to take some time before they are all available due to the size of the collection but we’ll keep you updated on progress. If you have any questions or if you have any images or items you’d like to share please just get in touch with the archives.
