The School’s Archive Department holds a complete set of the Young Decanian magazines which are used extensively for family history enquiries and research on the School. Until today, these have only ever been available to look at within the Archive Department.

This new, fabulous, fully searchable, digital resource will not only greatly improve access for both researchers and the Dean Close community, it will also help safeguard the long term preservation of the original documents. The School has a fascinating past and an eclectic mix of alumni, many of whom feature within the pages of the magazines.
