Welcome to the Habs Archive Catalogue.

This is an online searchable database that comprises information about the records from both the Boys’ and Girls’ School Archives.

The archives of the Haberdashers’ Schools are wide-ranging and varied. They include items such as correspondence, minutes of meetings, annual reports, form lists, photographs, in-house publications, posters and programmes among other things.

This catalogue provides a description of the records that we hold; it does not include the full text of documents or digital images of records, so it is not possible, for example, to search a form list online. We are continually adding more catalogue records, so please return to this site in future.

The archives are kept at both schools and can be consulted by appointment. Please send any enquiries to the Boys’ and Girls’ School Archivists. Please note that administrative records are generally closed; the Archivists will advise readers wishing to see records relating to students.

Both School Archives are delighted to accept donations of relevant material that increase the richness of the collections, such as diaries, correspondence, and photographs. Should you wish to donate any items relating to your or a relative’s time at either schools please do get in contact.
