St Mary's College


St Mary’s College Archives were set up in 1999 on the eve of the College’s 150th Jubilee in 2000.

They comprise a collection of historical records including photographs, rolls for the 1930s onwards, programmes for musical concerts and productions, uniforms, early magazines and the documentation required to be kept under the public Records Act 2005.
