Founded in 1480, Magdalen College School (MCS) played an important part in the history of education. MCS became independent from Magdalen College, Oxford, in the 1980s.
The MCS Archive exists to collect and preserve records produced by the school, or relating to the school and its community.
The school’s heritage collections include:
The school’s earlier history remains entwined with that of its predecessor institution, Magdalen College, so you may need to direct your enquiry to both school and college.
The MCS Archive is available for access to stakeholders and the public by appointment with the Archivist on Mondays and Tuesdays during term-time. The Archivist will undertake short pieces of research in the collections for those not able to access the Archive in person. Copies of records will be provided upon request.
