We have log books (diaries compiled by headteachers) and admission registers for many schools in West Sussex, from as early as 1862. You can usually find them amongst the main schools series or, for Church of England schools, amongst the parish church archives.
Admission registers before 1914 can be accessed on Find My Past, either by subscribing to the website or by visiting the Record Office where it is available in the searchroom free of charge.
Records under 100 years old may be subject to restrictions under the Data Protection Act, but where they can be made available, they are a valuable resource.
You may also find correspondence, photographs, newspaper cuttings and other records created.
Please note: We do not hold exam results. You will need to contact the relevant exam board.
