Kevin Roberts, Cataloguing Archivist at Cambridgeshire Archives has been busy systematically bringing the Cambridge and County School for Boys and Hills Road Sixth Form College’s archives together into a catalogue alongside a small amount of related records already held at Cambridgeshire Archives. 

Kevin said, “This is the largest and most comprehensively documented of all our school collections with almost one thousand catalogued items”.

Laura Moss, Library & Digital Resources Manager at Hills Road said, “Hills Road Sixth Form College inherited a large amount of photographs, school records and publications, dating back to 1900, when the Cambridgeshire High School for Boys was founded as well as collecting more recent information since becoming a sixth form college in 1974.”
“The College realised the extent of this valuable information and wanted it to be made accessible to the public. We approached the Cambridgeshire Archives team and they were extremely enthusiastic to help.”

The College is delighted that the archives can now be accessed in person at Shire Hall under the collection reference C/ES30C.
The catalogue can be viewed online at:
