Content and structure area

Scope and content

This collection draws together material produced for and by the marketing department of Oakham School. Particular strengths of the collection include press cuttings and publication material (prospectuses, handbooks, maps etc.).

Press cuttings from multiple local and national newspapers have been collected together by marketing staff, gathering together news of Old Oakhamians.

Publications contain material produced for new admissions into the school and contain detailed information about uniform, curriculum, pastoral care, and general daily life of the school.

Appraisal, destruction and scheduling

As far as is recorded, these items are fully appraised into the collection.


It is expected that this series will receive multiple accruals in the future.

System of arrangement

This sub-fonds is divided into four series. Material has been sorted according to themes and new acquisitions are added to the end of each series/sub-series.

Many of the press cuttings are grouped together in multiple scrapbooks.

Any digital files are stored in folders that replicate the series arrangement.
