The school archive is a popular resource that helps inspire and equip current pupils to understand and appreciate issues of identity, belonging and shared heritage, and also prompt memories of school-life among many generations of Old Portmuthians.

Unfortunately the school archive has many gaps – admission registers, for example,were lost during the Second World War and there are other gaps in photographic coverage when the school’s records were not as valued as they are today. So if you have any photographs, films, reports, diaries, letters or other material that sheds light on what life was like in your schooldays, they would find a safe and valued place in the archives. Alternatively, the school archivist John Sadden would be happy to copy original material which would be returned swiftly and safely.
