Bedales Schools Digital Archives

Welcome to the Bedales Digital Archives

The project to have various resources digitized is still in its infancy, and we welcome your comments and suggestions.

We have started by digitizing the earliest editions of The Chronicle which was first published in 1907. A few copies from the 1970s and 1980s have also been digitized, so that you can see how (relatively) recent editions compare with the earliest ones.

In the longer term we would, of course, like to complete the digitization of The Chronicle, and also the official Bedales Record, which was published between 1897 and 1935. For those of you here in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, this was a very different magazine to the one you may know as the Records!

Thanks are due to the Bedales Association for funding the initial project. We are also grateful for generous donations from some Old Bedalians, who have sponsored the digitization of particular issues. If you would be interested in making a small donation towards this project, or perhaps sponsoring the digitization of an edition published during your school years, please do get in touch with Jane Kirby, Archivist, at Bedales jkirby@bedales.org.uk. If you are able to Gift Aid a donation, it will go even further – please do ask for a Gift Aid form.
