Welcome to Shiplake College’s Digital Archives. We hope that you will find a wealth of information in this online archive and enjoy looking back through the history of the College.
Founded in 1959, Shiplake College is relatively young in comparison with many other independent schools in the UK. Despite this, there is no doubt that the College boasts a rich history and tradition of its own. The College itself has provided a home and a school for over 4,500 pupils, spanning nearly six decades.
Thanks to the generosity of the Old Viking Society, a range of publications and photographs from the College archive have been digitised and made available for you to browse at your leisure from anywhere in the world. The digital archive has a full search facility to enable you to explore by year, keyword, name or category (sports, music etc.).
In 2019 we celebrated our 60th anniversary and as part of the celebrations we embarked on producing this online archive – please see it as an ongoing project as we will be adding to this resource over the coming years.
Can you add to the archive? We are always keen to add relevant materials to the Archives. Photographs, publications and memorabilia directly related to Shiplake College all increase the richness of the collection. Should you have any items relating to your, or a relative’s, time at the school that you would like to donate, please get in touch.
