Memory Bank

The Ardingly Memory Bank brings the history of the College to life through the stories and experiences of Old Ardinians. We encourage Old Ardinians from every generation, as well as members of the wider Ardingly community, to share with us their memories of life at school. These submissions form a valued part of the College Archive, helping us build a broad, holistic picture of daily life at Ardingly over the decades.
