Accessing the MGS Archives

The MGS Archive contains a wealth of material on the 500 year history of the School, much of which will interest researchers, including genealogists and family historians. We are happy to take enquiries from researchers via email, post or phone, and will do our best to respond with any information we are able to supply. However, the School receives a large number of enquiries, so please bear with us as we may not always be able to answer enquiries immediately.

We do not charge for short archival research, but we are a charitable organisation and would be pleased to receive a donation in lieu of a fee. All donations will go to the School Bursary or Archive Fund. Longer, more involved research may incur a fee. Please contact the Archivists, Rachel Kneale, Mary Ann Davison and Otto Smart, for further details at

Researchers are welcome to visit to consult archive material in person, but should contact the Archivists in advance to arrange a suitable time.
