About the St Andrew’s School for Girls’ Digital Archive

St Andrew’s School for Girls, with Africa Media Online, embarked upon the digital archiving of selected items in the school archive collection in 2015.
The initial digitisation project is to make all the issues of the St Andrean, the school magazine, available online in searchable low-resolution pdf format.
Currently issues of the St Andrean from 1975 to 2017 are available through the Digital Archive.
The two published histories of St Andrew’s School for Girls will also be made available, in low resolution pdf format, during 2019.
These resources provide a wealth of information about the school and are a valuable starting point for school history enquiries.

Users are advised to register and log in for maximum viewing of the Digital Archive.
