Our Archives are the repository for the official and unofficial documentary records of Geelong Grammar School, Clyde School and The Hermitage School, including admissions registers, publications, bursars’ records, ephemera, letters, minutes and record books. The Archives are housed in a purpose-built secure vault within the Fisher Library.

Our Heritage Collections include art and artefacts, manuscripts, maps, rare books, furniture, photographs and film. Many items have been donated to the school for educative purposes over the past 165 years, including works of art by significant Australian artists, centuries old curiosities, medieval manuscripts and more. Many heritage items are dispersed throughout the school where they may be enjoyed and appreciated by the community.

Exhibitions are regularly mounted in the Perry Quad, which our community and visitors are welcome to view. Our Archives are available to Old Geelong Grammarians and bona fide researchers undertaking genealogical or other research. Please complete the Request for Access form to submit your query.
